On behalf of the BISA Football Technical Committee, I would like to thank the coaches, officials, players and all the stakeholders involved in the just-ended national finals. Teacher coaches must be thanked for without them we wouldn’t have witnessed the quality displayed by our teams throughout the tournament.

We seem to be getting better every year in terms of play and organisation. Our gratitude goes to the Letshwiti led BFA for their continued support as we continue to use the facilities for free. Not many people know that we hijacked the BFA annual program to include the CAF C license course in March, and it bore fruits since 70 % of coaches who reached the national finals attended the same. Teacher coaches are encouraged to invest more in their own coaching education for their own growth and development.

The FIFA Time for Change project which just ended in Kasane, will be in Maun from Monday till Friday. Letters of attendance have already been sent the subzone coordinators with regards to this.

Finally, I still maintain that teachers remain the pin code if as a country we want to qualify for any major international showpiece like the Nations Cup. Let’s keep those injured in our prayers and where we erred as a committee we will improve next year.


Magang to attend Women in Football Leadership Programme

Since the approval of the FIFA reforms by the Extraordinary FIFA Congress in February 2016, FIFA has placed great emphasis on bringing more women into football’s decision-making bodies, as evidenced by the increased presence of women on the FIFA Council, FIFA
Standing Committees, FIFA Management Board, as well as in the wider FIFA administration.

The success of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 has further raised the awareness of women’s football and its unique qualities, both on and off the pitch, including the positive impact the game has on girls and women around the world.

Following these successes of women’s national teams, the Botswana Football Association is delighted to inform the media and public that FIFA has invited National Executive Committee members Mrs Tsoseletso Magang to the second edition of the Women in Football Leadership Programme. This workshop reinforces Botswana’s as well as FIFA’s commitment to increase women’s participation in senior decision-making positions within football.

Mrs Magang’s participation in the programme will prove to be of great importance to advance women’s football in Botswana. She will be provided with the opportunity to grow as a leader in football in a multicultural and international environment.

Good progress has been made in women’s in recent times but the Football Association believes there is still a long way to go and more efforts are required. Mrs Tsoseletso Magang will be heading to Switzerland to attend the 2019 Women in Leadership program from 18th-22ndNovember 2019
