Bfa Head Of Women’s Football Tsholofelo Sethoko International Womens Day Message

As we celebrate Women’s Day in this trying times of Covid 19, we need to take this opportunity of no activities to look back and reflect on where we come from as women football and where we want to see ourselves as a whole. Women football has grown exponentially at all levels in recent times and the degree of passion for the sport shows that there is potential for further growth.

I believe women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent and empowering them should be a priority also making sure we provide them with equal opportunities in our country. If we invest in a girl/women we are investing in everyone. There is no limit to what women can accomplish if we work together as a team, if we want to grow women football we need to increase the female representation in decision making bodies and remember that where there is a women there is magic.

I WANT TO BE COUNTED AS A WOMAN WHO IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN SOCIETY, what about you?

GABORONE, Botswana – Following the request by Senior National Team Coach, Adel Amrouche for leave of absence to attend to a personal matter, the Botswana Football Association (BFA) wishes to inform the public that he has been granted the leave with immediate effect.

The affairs of the National team in preparation for the tournament, set to take place in Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa from 7-18 July 2021 shall be handed over to Letang Kgengwenyane.

Amrouche took over as the Zebras head coach in August 2019 on a two-year deal. After weeks of engaging with the coach over his future, an agreement was reached not to extend his contract.
