History

The Botswana Football Association was founded in 1970 (then it was known as the Botswana National Football Association (BNFA)) and was the only affiliate of Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) when it was registered in 1973. It affiliated to Federation Internale de Football Association (FIFA) in 1978. It is also an affiliate of Confederation of African Football (CAF), Council of Southern African Football Associations (COSAFA) and BNSC.

The BFA has 16 Regional Football Associations (RFA) affiliated to it and these have over 200 clubs affiliated to them. The chairpersons of these RFAs’ form what is known as the National Council.

Programmes / Activities

BFA also has under their wing, a number of leagues, namely; the Premier League, which has 16 teams; First division league comprising of North & South, which has twelve (12) teams each. Each region also has got at least three leagues (division 1, 2, & 3) running with approximately 280 clubs registered under them.

Apart from the above mentioned activities, BFA also runs other programs such as women’s football, which is still at preliminary stages, youth development programs in the form of Re Ba Bona Ha (which is basically raw talent scouting), school of excellence (development of identified talent) and village development teams (out reach program targeted at disadvantaged youth far from major towns).

We also have a number of national teams participating at different regional, continental and international levels, and these are the Senior National team, National U23 team and the developmental team (under 20 year olds).

Pitted against the world’s best in international football ranking (FIFA), Botswana is currently positioned at number 99 in the world.
