Fani apologises for bfa blunder

The Botswana Football Association (BFA) President David Fani has apologised for the administrative blunder that locked the country's junior teams out of African soccer competitions.

Botswana will not participate in the Under-17 and Under-20 competitions because the BFA failed to submit registration forms to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) in time.  Fani told the biennial BFA general assembly in Gaborone on Saturday that an official of the association is responsible for the blunder.  "

We failed to register our national Under-17 and Under-20 for their respective CAF competitions.  In July last year, we received invitations from CAF to register, but we regret to tell this assembly that the registration forms were not signed by the Chief Executive Officer and forwarded to the CAF headquarters," Fani said. However, the association was able to register the national Under-23 side for CAF competitions.
