League champions, Township Rollers will use the new Jamali Stadium for the 2019/2020 CAF Champions League games.

The 10, 000 capacity stadium in Tlokweng was completed earlier this year and its construction was a joint project between property mogul Sayeed Jamali and Rollers' president Jagdish Shah.

The Blues will be competing in the continental club competition for the third consecutive  season while making an 11th overall appearance. Rollers' public relations officer, Bafana Pheto said the stadium has been given the thumbs up by the Botswana Football Association (BFA) and continental football body, CAF. The stadium will taste its first piece of football on July 20 when Rollers host the South Africa's Kaizer Chiefs in a preseason friendly match.
