BFA financials in order

Botswana Football Association (BFA) has recorded a surplus of P 6.7 million this year.

Speaking at the BFA extraordinary general assembly at the weekend, Vice President Pelotshweu Motlogelwa said their financials were in order, unlike last year, where they were operating on a deficit of P2.8 million.

Presenting two budgets for the year 2019/20 and 2020/21, Motlogelwa said for the 2019/20, they had budgeted P44 million, while for the financial year 2020/21, they had budgeted P46 million, while the projected expenditure for 2019/20 was at P23 million and P21 million for 2020/21.

The BFA found it prudent to present the two budgets because every year at their annual general assembly, they had been retrospectively approving budget as the AGM comes in July, while the financial year starts in April.


Magang to attend Women in Football Leadership Programme

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
