The Kamikaze Inline Hockey team hosted the Build It Iron Man tournament over the weekend at the DTS Sports Field in Windhoek, with more than 40 teams participating in the tournament.

The two-day tournament aimed to serve as a pre-season event for seven different age divisions before the official league starts.

On Saturday, more than 40 teams took part in an Inline Hockey tournament, which began on Friday afternoon and concluded at midnight on Saturday, with hundreds of players competing.

The tournament primarily serves as a pre-season event to prepare athletes for upcoming Inline Hockey competitions.

Games are played continuously for ten minutes with mixed teams comprising both girls and boys players.

NBC interviewed Kamikaze coach Luke Stamatiadis, who is also one of the organizers.

"This is a Build It Iron Man tournament, is a fun tournament as we do it as a pre-season every year and it's been played all over the country with their own teams and we play Hockey. In-line Hockey is related to Ice Hockey, which was born out of Hockey and has existed in Namibia since 1995. We do quite a lot in this sport. We have to continue building on the sport that we are involved in "he said.

The Inline Hockey league is scheduled to commence in April at the Windhoek Showgrounds.
