FIFA Connect Workshop

All media houses are invited to the official opening of the FIFA Connect workshop at the Avani Gaborone Hotel and Casino on Thursday 21st April 2016 at 08h30. The workshop is hosted by the FIFA Regional Development Office in conjunction with the Botswana Football Association, and will be facilitated by the FIFA Connect Manager and Development Office as well as the FIFA Connect team.

The workshop is meant to improve record keeping and database management by the Football Associations in the region. It will be attended by Secretaries General/Chief Executive Officers and Registration Officers of Football Associations in the region; i.e. from Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The workshop will be officially opened by the BFA President, Mr. Tebogo Sebego.

The attention of the media is further drawn to the FIFA Goal Project IV which has recently been awarded to the BFA for the re-turfing of the Lekidi Grass Pitch into an artificial surface. To this end, FIFA will be sending an expert to Gaborone on Thursday 21st April 2016 to inspect the pitch in readiness for the preliminary works towards the project. The inspection will start at 09h00 and will run up to lunch time. The project comes through after the BFA was not able to secure a lease in respect of the Francistown Old Stadium which was earmarked for this project.

To conclude the weekend international football schedule, Botswana will be hosting an Under 20 AFCON qualifier second leg against Zimbabwe at the Lobatse Sports Complex on Friday 22nd April 2016, starting from 19h00. Botswana won the first leg 1- 0 in Bulawayo earlier this month.
