City Kings Shits Focus, Now Eyes First Division North Promotion


City Kings’ coach Casper Elijah has said his team’s loss to police X1 in the Orange FA Cup over the weekend, which marked the end of their campaign in the tournament, has not deterred them from their pursuit for promotion to the First Division North.

With only five matches remaining in the current league (Gumare Stream), he said the team is determined to approach each game with a well-thought-out strategy and focus.

City Kings currently occupy the second spot in the league with 29 p log, behind log leaders, Green Stars SC of Etsha village separated by 3 points. According to the coach, the City players are in high spirits, ready to take on the challenges ahead.

The upcoming encounter against relegation-bound Acidic FC tomorrow at the Kings Park Arena is crucial, and Coach Elijah is confident that his boys will secure victory. He expressed confidence in his charges, who he believes will qualify for the regional play-offs and eventually earn promotion to the First Division league.

“We have five matches left, therefore if we win all of them we will end the season with 44 points. We have to push harder than before,” he said.

He further indicated that the FA Cup has been a distraction as it affected their performance in the league.

“We will play in the Orange FA Cup next season because my team is in good form to win the stream championship’’.

Tomorrow, City Kings takes on the relegated bound, Acidic FC at the Kings Park Arena, while, the log leaders will welcome the third placed, Red Stars at Green Stars Ground in Etsha. In other fixtures tomorrow, FC Mbunda welcomes Westside Spurs at Mbunda Grounds.  On Sunday, High Flyers FC is home to Young Stars, Morning Stars FC travels to Gumare to meet Standby FC while Golden Boys FC welcomes Silent Killers at Etsha 9 Grounds. All games start at 1600hrs.

Meanwhile, City Kings’ financier, Calvis Kopo, has unveiled ambitious plans to boost football tourism in the Okavango region. The team’s recent performances against Mochudi Centre Chiefs and Police XI demonstrated their ability to compete at the highest level, Kopo emphasised, indicating that the need for investment in football infrastructure, including player welfare, transportation, and coach incentives is vital.

“We are not just a team, but a community. All stakeholders and businesses in the Okavango area should come together to support our talented players and promote football development,” he stressed.
