Our Vision

For The Dome and its Indoor Sports Centre to become the preferred choice to host local, regional and international conferences, music concerts and exhibitions, recreational sports programmes and competitive sports events in Namibia. To promote sport as an effective means of community development and social upliftment.

Our Team

The multi-million dollar project is the brainchild of developers Horst Fritze and Paul van Biljon, both prominent Namibian businessmen. The scale of this investment into sport and youth development is a first for Namibia and a labour of love for the two developers. It’s not capital gain that motivates these two investors, but a firm belief that sport plays a vital role in the holistic development of healthy future generations.

“We are creating a sporting legacy; a facility which aids in sporting development of Namibian Athletes long after we as the developers have left the scene”


Our History

The idea to develop such a facility arose in 2003 after the developers attended a sports event abroad. After spending 10 years acquiring the land and developing a suitable business model, the construction phase started in 2013. The Health & Training Centre with gym and indoor swimming pool was launched in August 2015. The Conference Centre opened late in 2015, and the BON Hotel commenced business on the 6th December 2015 on Level 3 of The Dome.
