The Botswana Football Association (BFA) has moved swiftly to plug the gap created by the reduction in the BTC Premiership sponsorship, after agreeing to a P4.5 million deal with Barclays Bank for the coming season.

The start of the season was pushed forward to August 30, from August 17, amidst talks with potential sponsors, after BTC cut its P13 million sponsorship deal to just P5 million, citing failure to honour certain contractual obligations.

But there will be good news for the clubs after the BFA agreed to a P4.5 million deal with the commercial bank.

BFA president, Maclean Letshwiti confirmed the deal to Monitor Sport, but refused to reveal details of the sponsorship.“We have signed the deal, and it will be launched on Wednesday,” Letshwiti said yesterday, a day after announcing that he will seek a second term at next year’s elective general assembly.

was plunged into a crisis after BTC reduced the sponsorship to P5 million for the 2019-2020 season.

This left the 16 teams facing the possibility of ‘playing for nothing’, as the BPL board mulled the scrapping of prize money.

But there is now light at the end of tunnel, although there is still a P3.5 million shortfall, which the BFA is still looking to close before the start of the season.

Meanwhile, Letshwiti implored officials to ensure that they kept the game clean in order to attract or retain sponsors.

He told the BFA general assembly on Saturday that if the administrators dropped the ball, clubs would be forced to play without sponsors.
