SPAR Namibia will ensure that all training camps, team wear, entry and coaching fees, as well as travel costs of the teams’ coaches and managers relating to the national teams, will be covered. Furthermore, SPAR will make provision to cover the travel expenses to the Inline Hockey World Championship of four underprivileged junior national players, taking pressure off of the players and their families to raise much-needed funds, and allowing the inline hockey community to focus primarily on the growth of the sport and team.
The NIIHA was founded in 1998. Currently, 416 players are part of the associations including the men’s, women’s and junior teams. Namibia’s inline hockey team has participated in global tournaments for a few years and the team is growing in popularity. SPAR Namibia saw the immense potential in the national development of the Namibian inline hockey teams as well as the strides being made to ensure greater inclusivity in the sport.
SPAR Namibia’s sports sponsorship of both the national teams and other local events comes from a deep interest in creating inclusive sporting opportunities for all. Through this new sponsorship, the retailer supports the development of inline hockey players as well as the sport.
