The Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) has told the Botswana Football Association (BFA) to pay stadium fee arrears or else the Zebras will not play Zambia at the Francistown Sports Complex on Friday.
The BFA pays 25percent of gross match takings to the BNSC. The soccer body owes for the Angola game and the FA Cup final, both which were played in Francistown, while there are outstanding amounts for the Seychelles (Lobatse Sports Complex) and FA Cup matches played in Molepololole.
The BNSC demanded the dues from BFA over the weekend and threatened that they would not allow the Zebras to play Zambia at the stadium in a African Nations Championships qualifer, unless the debt was cleared.
BNSC said it appeared BFA wanted to use the facilities for free.BFA spokesperson, Tumo Mpatane confirmed that they owe BNSC but they expect to have paid by tomorrow.
"BNSC was making a follow up on its payments for national team activities and that we should indicate what we have paid. We have paid for other activities and we would pay for the others," he said.
