Gaborone United (GU) intends to honour this weekend's fixture despite the Botswana Premier League (BPL) games being cancelled.

The BPL was set to resume this weekend after the festive break but due to a tussle for the Botswana Football League (BFL) leadership, the games have been cancelled. The fight involves the 13 BFL members led by Masitaoka FC's Godfrey Ratlhaga and GU president, Nicholas Zackem with the latter being pushed out of the BFL chairmanship.

The brawl has seen a series of meetings between the involved parties since mid-December and the latest was on Wednesday but did not bear fruit. The 14-member cohort has since said the league would not resume and they will not honour league games until the matter is resolved.
