Referees complete FIFA course

Botswana Elite Referees have been advised to be disciplined and give football integrity as they completed a week-long FIFA elite referees course. When closing the course  BFA first Vice President Segolame Ramothwa said the referees are an Integral part of the game and hence why the Association found it fit to improve their skills and facilitate for local referees to be exposed to international training.

The course Instructor Felix Tangawarima praised Botswana for having youthful referees and edged the Association to keep producing more referees. The 34 referees went through a physical test as well as theory and practical training, which Mr Tangawarima believes they excelled on all fronts.
