The First Division South League intends to organise a Top 8 tournament in January, with teams that finished the first round in the first eight positions eligible to participate.

League secretary, Sydney Magagane said the tournament can only be possible if there is funding. He said they are yet to meet with the Botswana Football Association (BFA) on how they could be assisted. He told Mmegi Sport that if they find sponsorship, it will mean the commencement of the second round of the league will change. He said logistics of the tournament will depend on the sponsorship as the other idea is to hold the competition in different places. Magagane said they want to take the sport to the people as a way of promoting the league.

“The first round has ended on time and the second round starts on the last week of January. We had a good round because we did not receive major complaints from teams or protests. Our counterparts in the North are yet to wrap up the first round,” he said. He said electronic registration is still outstanding and teams have been given up to January to complete the process.
