President’s Corner

BFA President Speaks!

Bagaetsho, happy new year.
The past three years have been the most difficult years for football and life in general. However, we saw little improvement last year especially in our Women’s football development as they represented us on the continental stage.
We also saw some progress on other areas especially at regional level where we endeavor to deepen our engagement.
Club Licensing is another aspect where we see some progress while we note some pockets of resistance.
In our efforts to commercialize our football product, we have agreed that we need to be very firm and focused and work together to achieve this mandatory objective. My Executive and I together with management will be working very hard this year to make sure we advance football.
We therefore urge all our stakeholders, sponsors, the media, and you our most important stakeholder, the supporters to rally behind us to achieve as one.
I wish you all the best in your respective endeavors.
Thank you.
