Friends remember Tugela

TugelaFormer football players have dusted off their boots to play in a Tugela Tuyeni Memorial Match at Swakopmund, tomorrow, 04 February 2017.
 
Tuyeni, a former Blue Boys, Blue Waters, Civics and national team midfielder, died in a vehicle accident on 16 December last year.
Many of his former team mates and opponents were by then on holiday and did not make it to his funeral.
 
His friends therefore decided to pay tribute to their fallen star in the most befitting manner, which is a memorial tournament at his home town of Swakopmund.
 
Another memorial match will be played in Windhoek later in the month.
 
The memorial matches have been organised by Aweh Aweh, the social club which he and his friends established after he retired from active football, and Blue Boys, where he started his organised football career.
 
The exhibition matches are sponsored by MobiPay, the technology company where Tuyeni was employed.
 
Matches which will be played at the Mondesa Stadium in Swakop and entrance fee is N$10 per person.
 
The schedule of the exhibition matches is as follows:
 
12h30 Swakop Secondary School
v De Duine Secondary School
 
13h30 Aweh Aweh SC
v Tugela’s Walvis friends
 
15h30 SFC v Blue Boys
 
17h30 Aweh Aweh SC
v Tugela’s Swakop friends
