BFA in desperate bid to attract fans for Zebras game


The Botswana Football Association (BFA) is pulling all the stops to attract fans to this afternoon's crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier where the Zebras take on Equatorial Guinea at the Obed Itani Chilume Stadium.

Kick-off is 3pm. The Zebras need nothing but a win if they are to retain an interest in the qualifiers. Mogomotsi 'Teenage' Mpote's charges are at rock bottom with just one point from three matches.

The BFA, in a bid to garner support for the team, has reduced gate charges to P10 for the rest of the ground. This represents the cheapest ticket for a football match in recent times, with even First Division side matches costing P25.

Schoolchildren will be allowed in for free to give the Zebras the much-needed push.
