Annual General Assembly and Charity Cup Settled on 11 August 2018

The BFA AGA as per Article 301. of the BFA Constitution should not be held later than the 14th August.

The AGA could not be held earlier than the 11th August due to pending structural Assemblies, specifically the issue of Women Football elections, which were held on 4th August 2018. The 11th August was, therefore, the only constitutionally available date.

The 11th August was also the only suitable date for the Charity Cup. As a pre-season tournament, it had to be played before the commencement of the league (the league start on the 18th August). The other challenge was to find a suitable date that could accommodate Township Rollers Schedule from the CAF champions league and the upcoming football season. Rollers are currently in a position to possibly qualify for the next round of the competition and hence we needed to take into consideration the challenge the Botswana Premier League office would have in running their calendar.
