Namibia/Egypt: NFA Bigwigs At Fifa Workshop

THE top brass of the Namibia Football Association left for Cairo, Egypt, yesterday where they will attend a 2014 Fifa World Cup Workshop.

The delegation is headed by NFA president John Muinjo and will be involved in various workshops aimed at improving administration between Fifa, CAF and member associations during the remainder of the preliminary competition for places at the 2014 Fifa World Cup to be held in Brazil.

President Muinjo will attend a commissioners' workshop tomorrow at the CAF headquarters, while secretary general Barry Rukoro will be part of a CAF workshop for general secretaries on Friday.

NFA representative Cyril Tim Isaacs is expected to take part in the administration workshop scheduled for Thursday.

"These workshops are of paramount importance and are ideal for the coming days because with the qualifiers starting in earnest, we all want to be up to date with the information in terms of security, safety and administration to ensure that we have smooth and fair competition in the race for Brazil 2014," said Muinjo.

He added that they hope to acquire better knowledge of the logistical arrangements for the qualifiers.

"We are looking at acquiring the best practices expected of us in these qualifiers and that can ensure that at the end of the day, the game is played fairly and in harmonious way and in good spirit of Fifa as we continue to celebrate this great game."

The workshop is jointly organised by Fifa and CAF and will take place at the Marriott Hotel in Cairo, Egypt.

The Namibian delegation is expected back home over the weekend.
