Botswana repeals ban on alcohol sports sponsorship following COVID-19 challenges

Bans on advertising alcohol products at sporting events, and on partnerships between sporting codes (associations) and the alcohol industry, have been lifted in Botswana. The bans were initially introduced to prevent children and young people from being exposed to alcohol advertising. The change has been linked to the need for the Botswanan government to raise funds following the high cost to the government of COVID-19 lock-down.
