The Botswana Premier League also has always advocated for their autonomy and this comes at a time when the move for a commercial wing of the elite league is a must do.

Different football General Assemblies have also reiterated the need for the Botswana premier League to be independent from BFA.

The journey to make that a reality has begun with the help of different stakeholders. The FIFA professional department has been holding the BFA’s hand to achieve the desired goals.

BFA has since appointed a Transformation and Sponsorship Committee to implement the transformation of the elite league.

We are happy to announce that Botswana Football League (Pty) Ltd is registered with CIPA.

The company [Botswana Football league – BFL] will have all 16 premier league clubs as shareholders, and it will be a stand-alone company which will run their errands independently from the BFA. The BFL will only be a special member of the federation [BFA] as per FIFA standards and guidance.

The company will re-brand the elite league and make it a more viable property to entice partnerships that will see value in their investment by associating with this business entity.

A new dawn begins. The days of the premier league running as a society are over. These are exciting times and it can only be hoped that all stakeholders will be happy for this new beginning.
