If you play in a SportsBW League competition you can be certain that you are playing in a league with the strongest discipline in the country. These are leagues that operate to the highest standards and will remain so.
We will not tolerate any violence towards our players or the referee – this means physical or verbal – and any player or team that is guilty of such behaviour will be removed.
Because we are not directly affiliated to any one governing body – instead choosing work in partnership with many county FA’s around the country and also the Botswana National Sports Foundation (BNSF) – we retain full control over who plays in our leagues and who does not.
Our leagues are competitive but fun, and it is absolutely essential to us that our leagues are as inclusive and community based as possible. If there is any team that behaves in a way that we believe puts this spirit at risk, then they will be removed from the league. We also welcome calls from teams who want to raise a concern about any teams in the competition.
All such calls will be treated in total confidence and will all be investigated thoroughly. Any player or team that is fined will need to pay this fine direct to the BNSF. Until that fine is paid then players will be suspended from competition.
Please note: that the Team Captain is responsible for the conduct of all players and all spectators connected with the team. Failure to control the conduct of players or spectators will result in the Team Captain being responsible for any resulting fines from the BNSF being paid in full.
