Gaborone United general manager Olebile Sikwane has explained why the Gaborone Derby will not be played at the National Stadium.
GU and their Gaborone rivals Township Rollers will lock horns in a massive BTC Premiership match at the University of Botswana (UB) Stadium on Sunday.
"The National Stadium is already (booked) for a music festival by other users," Sikwane told Botswana Football.
Rollers were held to a goalless draw by Jwaneng Galaxy in a league game at the Jwaneng Stadium on Tuesday.
Before facing Rollers, GU will take on Flamengo Santos at the Molepolole Sports Complex on Thursday.
Kick-off is at 17h00 between GU and Santos.
