Chula Chula attracts crowd, but for how long?

… rest of turnout poorly attended

• By Michael Uugwanga 

IT is no secret that local football has been witnessing a low turnout of football supporters/fans at local matches over the years, in particular, top-flight football however, history was made the past weekend in the return of the Debmarine Premiership between Eeshoke Chula Chula and Mighty Gunners at Oshakati Independence stadium.

It is reported that the match between Eeshoke Chula Chula vs. Mighty Gunners at the Independence Stadium on 17 September surpassed the record attendance of Black Africa vs.

African Stars in 2013 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek, which reportedly attracted about 7 000 spectators in the MTC/Namibia Premier League (today Debmarine Premiership).

Chula Chula, a newly promoted team to the Debmarine Premiership, defeated regular season campaigner in the top flight Mighty Gunners 2-1 in front of a big crowd that caught many people’s attention, in particular on social media, with some still debating on whether the reported attendance of 17,275 is a true reflection of a stadium that can only accommodate 8000 spectators.
