Sepp Blatter, President of the world football controlling body, FIFA, will be arriving in Namibia today (Friday) to open the new headquarters of the Namibia Football Association.
The R5 million Soccer House was paid for by FIFA, and formed part of their Goal Project, a project which Blatter himself conceptualized and used as part of his re-election campaign.
The Soccer House has been built in Katutura, a township in the capital city Windhoek, and will be used both for administrative purposes as well accommodation for national squads while they are in camp.
The occasion will also be attended by Namibian President Sam Nujoma as well as COSAFA dignitaries.
On Saturday the Namibian national soccer team will be playing in a friendly against Angola as part of the festivities.
The Brave Warriors will need to improve on their last performance against Angola, when they lost 2-0 in a match played two weeks ago in Luanda.
