The 2022-2023 Botswana Premier League season has come and gone with Jwaneng Galaxy now basking in their crowning moment.

The Jwaneng-based side took home P750,000 as the winner's cheque, which represents a 25% reduction from last season's prize money. As the elite football recaps the just-ended campaign, preparations for the upcoming season have been said to be already in full motion. The Botswana Football League (BFL) bosses will once again be on the tedious road, in the hunt for sponsorship and the target is an additional P5 million to the existing deals in order to efficiently run the league. At the start of the 2022-2023 season, the BFL announced a total of P25 million in sponsorship deals. The Department of Broadcasting Services (BDS) poured in P23 million for three years.

The just-ended campaign saw BFL utilise P7 million, while P8 million will be used in each of the two coming seasons. The P7 million was in addition to the P1.7 million cheque from commercial bank, Absa Botswana. Despite the figures, the BFL had said it would struggle to pay monthly grants and had not guaranteed prize money at the start of the season.
