Teams in the First Division have received P12,500 grants from the Botswana Football Association (BFA) as part of the Debswana mining company sponsorship deal.

First Division South secretary, Sydney Magagane confirmed to Mmegi Sport that the teams were given the grants at the beginning of the season. The First division league got P6 million sponsorship from Debswana in 2012. Magagane explained that the teams would be getting grants every four months.

 He said that he does not have much details on how much the prize money for champions will be. Magagane said the First Division league will be meeting with the sponsorship committee tomorrow and that is where more details will be discussed. He said the most critical thing that is now left is for the sponsorship to be launched. First Division South teams have already played three games each.
