BFA left clutching thin air

The Botswana Football Association (BFA) was left with an egg on its face after it was forced to cancel a multi million-pula deal with production company, Baboneng Film Productions.

BFA chief executive officer, Mfolo Mfolo told a press briefing in Gaborone this week, that the historic deal to broadcast First Division matches, was now off. Launched amid pomp and fan fare last year, the deal to televise First Division games never really took off. Only one match was televised and the BFA is now left counting its losses, after anticipated revenue, of P1.5 million, rising to P9 million over five seasons, never materialised. Baboneng were handed the rights to host First Division games, an arrangement which was supposed to commence this season.

“There was a contract breach and we felt that we could not continue,” Mfolo admitted, after inquiries from journalists.
