SELEBI PHIKWE: Selebi Phikwe Town Council (SPTC) is working round the clock to turn the town into a home for all junior soccer national teams. The closure of BCL mine has led to a serious reduction of sports and entertainment activities in the town, something that has negatively affected its vibrancy.

“We have opened talks with the Botswana Football Association (BFA) senior officials with a view of convincing them to turn Selebi Phikwe into a home for all junior national teams. The intention is to have most junior national team activities or matches held in Selebi Phikwe,” the town mayor Lucas Modimana said in an interview with Sport Monitor.

He added, “We believe turning the town into a home for junior national teams is among the many activities that can make the town livelier. The talks are at very preliminary stage, but we are very optimistic that they will end with a conclusive agreement.” Modimana also said a few years ago the then Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Thapelo Olopeng declared Obed Itani Chilume Sports Complex in Francistown, 'The Home of Zebras.’ He said the move worked wonders as staging more national team matches in the city improve its vibrancy. Olopeng declared that the stadium will be the official home of the Zebras because the team receives overwhelming support when it plays in Francistown.
