Lucara sponsors Boteti region teams

Boteti region football teams have been encouraged to take their play beyond the field by serving as ambassadors for  the region.

Lucara Botswana general manager, Johane Mchive, said this during launch of the company’s two-year sponsorship of P500 000 to 12 Boteti teams in division one on August 16.

Mchive implored the teams to keep on improving their performance and to strive for success in the midst of challenges.

He underscored the need to create an area of excellence and produce stars.

He said construction of a multipurpose sports complex that had be funded by Lucara Botswana had been scheduled for this year.

Mchive explained that the sports complex would be built alongside a school.

Boteti Regional Football association chairperson, Philemon Bunu, said Lucara Botswana would be supplying the teams with kits for both home and away games.

Referees would also be supplied with kits, transported and paid allowance through the sponsorship for two years, noting they had 15 referees.

He said they would also have five kits branded Lucara Botswana for five women teams with sponsorship from No Era Manufacturer.

Bunu committed to account for the sponsorship and be transparent in everything they did.

The ambition, he said, was to have offices and sports facilities under their management.

Botswana Football Association president, McClean Letshwiti, commended Lucara Botswana and praised it for committing to invest in the community.

He stated that the reason why Botswana football had not been successful was because regions were neglected, despite the fact that it was where development started.

He noted that some of the reasons why teams failed to receive sponsorships in the past was because there was no transparency and accountability.

He implored regions to sustain themselves, saying Boteti region was the first region to receive such sponsorship. ENDS
