FRANCISTOWN: The Botswana Football Association (BFA) has said the decision to invite members of the public to come up with designs for the 2020-2021 Zebras kit did not come as a result of pressure from supporters.

In March, a number of fans criticised the design of the Zebras home kit, manufactured by Umbro. The kit was launched days after BFA unveiled Umbro as a technical sponsor on a three-year deal, replacing local brand, All Kasi.

At the time of the kit launch, BFA spokesperson, Tumo Mpatane said despite strong criticism, the association was very happy with the kit.
