Nedbank Namibia has partnered with Impact Cricket Namibia to develop young talent and grow the sport in the country through the Desert Ice Cricket T20 League, one of the country’s most prestigious cricket leagues.

Through its Avo SuperShop, Nedbank Namibia is the official sponsor of the competition to the tune of N$50 000.

The sponsorship will provide the league with essential resources to enable the organisers to host exceptional cricket events during the course of the tournament, which will ultimately aid in the continued success and expansion of cricket in the community.

The Desert Ice Challenge T20 League commenced in April this year and consists of eight teams with 120 players, including some of the country’s upcoming cricket players, as well as premier league and national players.

The league is set to host games at Gobabis and Tsumeb simultaneously this weekend, where Gobabis Akademie is set to take on the Okahandja CC and Unam Zebras on 22 June at Gobabis Gymnasium.

The Tsumeb Gymnasium team is set to take on RW-Southern Kings and RW-Predator Nation on 22 of June at the Tsumeb Gymnasium sport fields.

The tournament will culminate in semi-final matches and a final to be played at the Walvis Bay Oval in the coastal town during the weekend of 13 and 14 July.

“These are exciting times to be a responsible corporate entity. At Nedbank Namibia, we are driven by our purpose of being Money Experts Who Do Good in the communities and in everything we do. This collaboration with Impact Cricket Namibia will reinforce our commitment of supporting initiatives that promote teamwork, discipline and a healthy lifestyle,” said Nedbank Namibia’s Beyond Banking head Roean Kruger, who is responsible for overseeing the operations of the Avo SuperShop.

The winners in the league will receive prizes courtesy of the Avo SuperShop, a bank-agnostic shopping app where users can buy goods ranging from gadgets to home supplies online and earn extra shopping points with each purchase.
