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.


Diamond Zebras & Young Zebras to play friendly matches

Botswana Junior National Teams under-17 (Diamond Zebras) and the under-20 (Young Zebras) will this weekend of 23rd – 25th August 2019 report to camp. The two teams will play friendly matches against Eswatini U17 & U20 boys on the 24th and 25th August 2019.

The games will be used to give the two teams international match practice. For his part, Diamond Zebras coach Tebogo Mokute says his charges will benefit greatly from the games as they have worked on different approaches and tactics in recent months and he is positive the team understands his vision.

Mokute will lead the Diamond Zebras to the 2019 COSAFA championships to be staged in Malawi from the 25th September to the 5th October 2019. The under-20 team under the tutelage of Raizor Tsatsilebe will find the games important as they have also started preparations for the 2019 COSAFA championship scheduled for December 2019 in Zambia.

Eswatini is expected to arrive in Botswana on Friday evening with games set to be played at Lekidi grounds. On Saturday 1600hrs and 0900hrs kick off on Sunday morning before the boys from the Kingdom of Eswatini return home.
