Namibia - List of Champions

prior to independence

NB: until 1976 there were separate championships for 'black' and
    'white' teams (the white league (South West League) being a 
    feeder league of the NFL structure in South Africa); the 1977 
    edition was the first which saw a final between the 'black' 
    (African Stars) and 'white' (Ramblers) champions to determine 
    the overall champions.
