2021/22 Kit Launched

Umbro South Africa and the Botswana Football Association are pleased to present the 21/22 home, away and alternate kits of the Botswana national teams. Unlike previous seasons, all three jersey designs were inspired by fan submissions and incorporate various elements of Botswanan iconography.

The Home jersey features black stripes against a background of traditional sky blue, capped with white sleeves – a visual reimagining of the Botswana flag.

The Away kit is strikingly simple in its minimalism, teaming black horizontal stripes with a crisp white base.
Echoing the striped silhouettes of the home and away kits, the Alternate jersey features a black-on-black stripe building into a watermarked zebra created by the negative space; a subtle nod to Botswana’s national animal and the team’s namesake.

All jerseys are made from a lightweight, breathable performance fabric and will be worn by the Botswana men’s national team in their AFCON qualifying fixture against Zimbabwe on Thursday, 25 March. Replica jerseys will be available through the football association and its affiliated retailers in late April.

BFA GRANTS AMROUCHE LEAVE OF ABSENCE

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.

Since the COSAFA tournament is the last competitive tournament for the Zebras in the immediate future, the BFA amicably resolved to release Amrouche. 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.

“The BFA understands and supports Mr. Amrouche’s situation and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours,” said BFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Goabaone G. Taylor.

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.

“Amrouche has been Zebras head coach since August 2019, and his leadership during that time was important to our successful development and international exposure of our players,” added Taylor.

“We appreciate all that Amrouche has done to build a disciplined team. He has always had a thorough understanding of what it takes to be a successful team and has done his best to mentor his players accordingly,” concluded Taylor.

Amrouche has since expressed gratitude towards the BFA for the opportunity.
“I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity to lead the Zebras over the last two years. I leave having picked up quite a number of valuable lessons that will be necessary in the journey ahead. I wish the Zebras success in future competitions,” Amrouche said in statement recently.
