Is this the end whistle?

With the Namibian Football Association (NFA) 2019 ’20 Namibian Premier League (NPL) coming to an end on Sunday the end whistle will probably blow for Blue Waters of Walvis Bay.

Since Waters lost its sponsorship, the team experienced a sad period over the past two seasons. It is almost unthinkable that a once proud coastal team will be kicked out of the Premier League.
NPL executive committee made it clear yesterday that the bottom three teams on the NPL league will be relegated to the first league and will be considered final as rules are rules and will be strictly enforced and that only two clubs will be relegated to the first league, which is currently not active. With no teams available to replace the relegated clubs, this means the 2019-20 Namibian Premier League could kick off with just 13 clubs.
Three teams will be relegated on Sunday and that is the final decision. Even if it means the first league will not start, the rules will be maintained. If the first league does not start and there are no clubs to promote, the 2019 ’20 NPL season will kick off with just 13 clubs, NPL executive added.
Blue Waters will play their final two games of the session against Okadandja FC and Citizens FC at 21:00 and 15:00 tomorrow 24 May and Sunday 25 May at the Kuisebmond Sports Field respectively.
Eleven Arrows will play their final two games of the session against Life Fighters and Okadandja FC at 19:00 and 13:00 tomorrow 24 May and Sunday 25 May at the Kuisebmond Sports Field respectively.
