Botswana Premier League (BPL) giants Township Rollers are set to host South African Absa Premiership side Platinum Stars in an international club friendly game.

The encounter, which will be played later this month, will be part of the HEforSHE campaign which intends to encourage the public to support gender equality in sport in Botswana.

Stars club chairman Clifford Ramorwa promised that Dikwena, who are coached by Cavin Johnson, will bring a strong team for the game.

“We will have some coaching clinics, our coach will interact with some of the local football academies or even some of your coaches may be before we play in the evening,” Ramorwa said on Mmegi.

The Botswana Football Association (BFA) have reportedly given Rollers, who were recently knocked out of the 2017 CAF Champions League, permission to play the game.

Stars are still active in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup after beating Mozambican side Uniao Desportiva do Songo in the preliminary round last month.

Dikwena will now take on Ugandan side Vipers in the first-round of the club continental competition later this month.
