Botswana National Stadium
|Address||Notwane Road, Gaborone|
Description: Botswana National Stadium
Its distinctive feature is the audience layout with 10 independent grandstands. Three of them together make for the main stand with seats and cover. At each end of the ground, behind running track curves, there are also three steep stands. And finally the 10th stands opposite the main stand.
Thanks to 2009-2010 renovation the ground easily meets FIFA’s criteria with fresh paintwork seen in 7 uncovered stands and a new running track as well (all in blue – the national colour).
Currently it’s the country’s largest stadium, but this is to change once the new Francistown stadium (400km north of the capital) is finished. With 27,000 seats the Francistown venue will be bigger, but construction is suffering from major drawbacks and is late by several years.
