Botswana Premier league this morning officially launched Season 7 of the Mascom Top 8 tournament. The top 8 have become an important tournament over the years bringing top class performances from the teams involved.
This year we welcome Security Systems aka "The Alarm Boys" as they join the tournament for the first time. We look forward to seeing what this season will bring for the Security Systems squad.
Mascom has made a sizeable improvement to the price money for the teams as we will now see the winners walking away with 1.3million richer. Companies like Mascom continue to notice the role of football, in driving the economy of our country and insuring that job creation is addressed.
Speaking at the event Botswana Football Association Vice President Segolame Ramothwa thanked Mascom Wireless for investing in Botswana football and helping sports become a key player in the economy.
