Botswana Football Association (BFA) and the British Council signed a Memorandum of Agreement, which will see the soccer body continue to benefit from Premier Skills programmes from the council. Premier Skills is a collaborative project between the English Premier League and the British Council.

The project was initiated in 2007 and it first launched in Botswana in 2009. The initial focus of the project is to develop community coaches and referees at the same time equipping them with skills to enhance or start up football based community projects for the benefit of youth and women.

Speaking at the signing of the agreement, British Council director, Nobantu Kalake urged the BFA to be innovative and think out of the box to see how best the project can benefit the community. Kalake said that ever since the inception of the project it has been able to train more than 300 community coaches. “We were having some discussions with the BFA president and when I told him this he asked where are all these people (the 300 coaches)? I think that is a question our partner (BFA) can answer as it was one of their

responsibilities to monitor what is happening out there,” she said.

BFA president, Maclean Letshwiti said it was an honour for the BFA to be engaged with the British Council. “Robust development programmes are the ones that we see at the AFCON and the World Cup. The reason why Botswana is not in the World Cup is because we do not do things right. We do not have a robust programme to take us where we are supposed to go and a gesture like this from the British Council is appreciated,” he said.

Letshwiti further stated that the Premier Skills project is very important for Batswana. “I must thank the British Council for their support in pursuit of our development programmes. It is not all about football but rather developing people and educating the young athletes at the same time giving them hope in life,” Letshwiti stated.
