beMOBILE Premiership outfit Orapa United have confirmed that they are interested in participating in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup.
The Ostriches qualified for the continental competition after winning the 2015/16 Mascom Top 8 Cup a fortnight ago.
When speaking to local media, Orapa's club official Barulaganye Bogotsi stated that they are keen to represent Botswana in the CAF inter-club competition.
"The plan is to go to CAF to compete with the other champions in the continent and raise the country’s flag," Mogotsi said.
Gaborone United and Mochudi Centre Chiefs were suppose to take part in this year's CAF Confederation Cup and CAF Champions League respectively.
Unfortunately, the two local giants pulled out of the CAF inter-club competitions due to lack of funds.
