The 5s BW Championships, according to Stanbic Bank Super 5s director, Gareth Mathews, are meant to identify a team that will represent Botswana at the World Cup finals to be held in Cape Town, South Africa in November. The competition underwent rebranding and was launched at Molapo Crossing. The night proceeded in an informative and interactive way with great insights on the importance of amateur football and how it has direct impact on health, economic and social development.
