The Orange FA Cup is one of the most celebrated and endeared football tournaments in the country. Seeing 48 local football teams participating in a knock out tournament where lower division teams are offered an opportunity to battle with the giants from the elite league. Inclusive to all teams regardless of status, popularity or experience much like our very own “Kgotla” in Botswana. The uniqueness of this tournament is its “nomadic” nature which takes football to the people. Reaching places as far as Tshane, Kasane, Sowa, Tsabong, Letlhakane and other areas in the country.
The Season 2 of the FA Cup commenced on the 30th of November 2019 and has since been received with open arms by players, coaches, supporters, fans and communities at large. With only 3 stages of the tournament left, a total of 194 goals have been scored, many of which have attributed to the departure of some of the elite league teams. Football giants such as the Ostriches (Orapa United), Alarm boys (Security Systems), Guna Guna (Extension Gunners) and many more have been knocked out.
This has left the tournament without any defending champions and as such the championship title remains vacant and available to any team in the Quarter Final Stage. Who will rise up to the challenge and claim the Orange FA Cup Season 2 Championship title along with P700, 000.00 ?
An exciting time in football amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic we are all facing which has resulted in the suspension of all football activity in Botswana until further notice…
