Jwaneng Galaxy general manager Bobo Moswaane says it was an eye-opening experience to participate in the CAF Confederation Cup.
The Botswana Premier League (BPL) club were eliminated from the competition by Mozambican side Costa Do Sol in the preliminary round after losing 2-0 on aggregate.
Galaxy, who were making their debut appearance in the continental tournament, qualified for the Confederation Cup after winning last season’s Mascom Top 8 Cup.
The Galaxy club official stated that they would gladly return in future, even though, it is a financially taxing tournament.
“It was a good learning experience, participation goes beyond the 90 minutes,” Moswaane told local media.
“It was a case of showcase what we can do as a club and test the visibility of our brand.
“It was a litmus test of our capabilities.”
Galaxy have turned their focus onto the BTC Premiership and they are set to play two rescheduled games this week.
They will face Black Forest at the Jwaneng Stadium on Wednesday, before hosting Gilport Lions at the same venue.
