The Botswana Football Association Executive Committee have granted the elite league autonomy.

The Botswana Premier League has always advocated for their autonomy and this comes at a time when the move for a commercial wing of the elite league is a must do.

The top-flight will be independent from Botswana Football Association when the process is completed.

The journey to make that a reality has begun with the help of different stakeholders.

Botswana Football Association has since appointed a Transformation and Sponsorship Committee to implement the transformation of the elite league.

"We are happy to announce that Botswana Football League (Pty) Ltd is registered with CIPA.

"The company [Botswana Football league – BFL] will have all 16 premier league clubs as shareholders, and it will be a stand-alone company which will run their errands independently from the BFA. The BFL will only be a special member of the federation [BFA] as per FIFA standards and guidance." a statement released on Monday said.
