Capricorn Group announced on Sunday, 29 August 2021, that they have entered into an agreement with

Cricket Namibia on becoming a main sponsor of Women’s Cricket, focussing on the national women’s team and the girls festivals/tournaments & school league to develop girls’ programs.

The event took place at the Wanderers sportsfield, where Cricket Namibia hosted a Capricorn Eagles Franchise T20 competition.

The Namibian National Women’s Cricket Team is now officially named the Capricorn Eagles. During the launch ceremony, Marlize Horn, Capricorn Group’s Executive: Brand & Corporate Affairs, thanked Johan Muller, CEO of Cricket Namibia, for the opportunity to collaborate. She handed over a cricket bat to symbolise the N$150,000 sponsorship.

Capricorn Group indicated that they are proud to be a partner of Cricket Namibia, whose leadership has demonstrated passion and commitment to cricket development over the years. They hope that their support of women’s cricket in Namibia will nurture the sport and increase female participation.

“We are very proud of the accomplishments of the Capricorn Eagles and look forward to seeing them soaring higher. Through our commitment of N$ 150 000 to women’s and girls’ cricket in Namibia for this year, we hope to grow enthusiasm for the sport in Namibia, but as Connectors of Positive Change, we look forward to this creating more opportunities for them. We are very proud to have the Capricorn brand, which represents Capricorn Group, Capricorn Asset Management and Capricorn Private Wealth, associated with the Namibian National Women’s Cricket Team.” Mrs Horn said.
