Speaking at a press briefing this week, BFA chief executive officer, Mfolo Mfolo said the Mares will undergo at least four more training camps before boarding the plane to Morocco. He said it is the BFA’s wish to see the team competing rather than participating in the tournament. The Mares had their first camp, with a two-weeklong training that ended last week.
