It has not been a campaign without glitches but the Debswana First Division South (DFDS) league has served one of the most thrilling campaigns.

The competitiveness on the field eclipsed the top three leagues in local football as the curtain came down on an impressive 2022-2023 season last weekend. The DFDS was, however, initially threatened by dragging sponsorship talks as the league resumed while the league office and mining giant, Debswana were in renewal talks.

The agreement took a while to conclude but eventually Debswana stayed on for a further three years. The DFDS league office was later embroiled in a ticket pricing brawl with Mochudi Centre Chiefs. The Kgatleng was brought before the league office for charging P5 extra compared to the league’s P25 standard price. The DFDS was also not shielded from the recent refereeing debacle that rocked the local football scenes. The league secretary-general, Ishmael Modise has, however, commended the pitch action.
