The Botswana Football Association wants to take the country's football to a different level after embarking on a long-term project to focus on grassroots football.

The new programme is aimed at grassroots football, youth and coaching development, and BFA president MaClean Letshwiti says they demand results.

For 51 years, Letshwiti said there is nothing to show when it comes to development, but believes there are challenges to be addressed.

“We looked around for best people in football development, that’s why we approached the German Football Association who have a robust development system,” said the BFA boss.

“GFA then sent Football Expert, (Christopher) Rocholl to assess the challenges.

“For his part, Mr Rocholl said for two months he has been going all over the country and doing assessments, with this he is hopeful the findings will help us recommend the right long term project for Botswana.

“There are lot of challenges that need to be addressed.

“When we start the long term project, we will have to follow the right structures (U15, U-17, U-20 U23 and National team) on the woman's and men's side of the game.”
