FIFA Youth Coaching Course ongoing at Lekedi

Twenty-five (25) local coaches involved with Youth Football are gathered at Lekidi for a week-long FIFA Youth Coaching Course.

The course was officially opened on Tuesday 18th December by the BFA General Secretary Mfolo Mfolo. Mfolo highlighted that the Association is looking at expanding the Elite Youth League hence the need for training the coaches.
