Ghana were the winners of the bi-annual tournament back in 2014 beating Westphalia, in the final through penalties, while South Africa finished third and hosts Namibia fourth.

Ghana-U17 team the Black Starlets Tournament Director Roger Kambatuku of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, said Westphalia are expected in Namibia by Mar. 17 while South Africa and Ghana will arrive on Mar. 19 in Walvis Bay.

The tournament is normally held at the coast as it coincides with the popular, Namibian Newspaper Cup which mostly takes place inland.

“They are all developmental tournaments and we take serious pride in them as a country and for us not to clash with the Namibian Cup in terms of public attendance, we prefer taking it to the coast and so far it works well for everyone,” said Kambatuku.

Last edition of the tournament featured eight games and 21 goals. Namibia’s captain and goalkeeper Donovan Gainub won the Goalkeeper of the Tournament award. Enditem
