Banyana Banyana win will boast our Ladies’ Team

The Botswana Football Association President MacLean Letshwiti and the National Executive are immensely pleased and excited about the magnificent win that our Ladies Team, pulled against a powerful South African side Banyana Banyana, under a hostile crowd, and considerable pressure.

We believe that this win will give our campaign in the Tokyo Olympic Qualifiers a much-needed morale booster and requisite competitive levels and confidence. We therefore wish and hope that the nation will rally behind the Ladies throughout this journey.

The BFA is pleased with the efforts the organization and its partners have made this far, starting with a training camp in Slovakia which proceeded this historic victory.

We urge the media and the stakeholders to see this victory as a result of our concerted effort towards the development of football especially women’s football as envisioned by FIFA.

The President called upon the private sector to come on board as we proactively change the landscape of women’s football in Botswana. In the last two years, we have sought to deliberately advance women’s football as it was largely marginalized and overlooked in the past.

The gains made in that regard, are promising and positive.
