NFA Auctions NPL Vehicle

The High Court, in a writ of execution issued on October 20, 2020, gave the Namibian Football Association (NFA) legal authority to auction off a vehicle belonging to the Namibian Premier League (NPL) under the FA efforts to recover money. of the NPL.

The latest court ruling, which set April 1, 2022 as the official auction date, stems from a lengthy 2020 legal battle between football’s two bodies, in which the NPL battled to make overturn his suspension by the NFA through the courts.

The High Court withdrew from the legal battle as it cited a lack of jurisdiction to hear the case, which left the NPL with no choice but to go to the Supreme Court. The nation’s highest court ruled in favor of the NFA – a decision that marked the final divorce between the NPL and the NFA.

It has also been ruled that the NPL should bear the NFA’s legal costs, and that is what the FA are now asking for through their latest High Court order. The legal costs at the time amounted to approximately 780,000 Namibian dollars.

The NFA has since been given the green light to auction a Toyota Corolla sedan (NPL-NA license plate) to the highest bidder on April 1, 2022 at the Brakwater auction grounds. The NFA was represented by lawyers Sisa Namandje & Co.
