Ending of the 2019-20 Football season

As Botswana and the world continue to fight the Coronavirus /COVID19, BFA continues to comply with government regulations on fighting the virus and reducing transmission by all ways possible.

The BFA has monitored the situation closely and working with the relevant authorities including the Ministry of Health and Wellness.

Having considered the prevailing circumstances in Botswana, the guidelines provided by the BFA Medical Committee, FIFA and CAF and the financial resources needed to return to play, the Botswana Football Association National Executive Committee unanimously agreed to end the football season. In ending the season, the effect is that the team at the summit is crowned champions and the teams at the bottom of the table are relegated.

A committee will be formed to deal with the modalities of the promotional play-offs.

The lives and health of the players and the nation at large was prioritised above all as it is currently too risky to return to play.
