History

The team was formed back in 1961 in the town, Gaborone, by a group of men and women who worked for the Public Works Department(PWD), a unit of the government under the then Bechuanaland Protectorate. At its inception the team was named Mighty Tigers. Mighty Tigers was one of the first teams to be formed in Gaborone, which was to become the capital town of the country.

In 1965, a year before the country attained her independence from Britain; a meeting was convened to relook the name of the team. Some members in the team strongly felt that because the team was based in town, it should be called “Township”. These men, who formed Township, were at the time also involved in constructing internal roads in the town, Gaborone. They used compacting equipment called “Rollers” in constructing the roads. Therefore, it was agreed that the team should be called Township Rollers, a football team that was visioned to become a national power house and a pillar of the football fraternity in Botswana

  14. I LIKE TO PLAY FOR TOWNSHIP ROLLERS IM A ZIMBABWE

  15. i like popa

  16. Mr jagdish Shah……I wish to commend you sir….our performance so far is all because of you…you have remained resolute to the blue family despite the challenges our team is facing………

    I wish to assure you of our support ……come Jan 2016…..dust will have settled….you remain our sponsor….We have reached heights we never imagined……

    My only request to you sir… bring Thabo Motang back……the guy is a popa at heart and he still wants to contribute to the goal keeping department………Dambe and Masule are his products…we can never doubt his potential….he would still be with us if it was not of Sommi………

    Again…our fitness needs the Physical Trainer at UB… I don’t know why he left the blue nation…I guess for the same reason…Sommi

    Harsh…pls forward my comments to Jagdish

    “If you cant beat them follow them”……”Popa leads, the rest follow”…that’s the brand popa has come to be because of you…Thanks to you Jagdish

  17. Weekend post…….If anybody has to account for popa’s accounts , its Somerset………Since he took over the team before the arrival of Shah, there has never been a financial report produced despite several calls for such…….players have been sold across the boarder,,,,for how much we don’t know,,…..

    At the moment, though I don’t have proof, Shah has spent more or precisely too much on popa more then what the team can raise nor afford on its own,,,,,,,,players salaries have improved, general welfare is the best,,,,,,,,so many teams envy us…..so whatever reprt Shah has to produce will show that if anything Rollers owes him a lot while Somerset owes this team big time!!!

    Before we can buy Somerset out, as he suggest through the media, he should furnish popa family with a detailed financial report since he took over up to the time when Shah came in.

    Somerset’s time is up and the men must just leave this society in peace. Happy people will remain happy ever

    • WELL SAID en I personally agree with you. He must leave.

  18. popa 4 lyf up the blues

  19. proud supporter up the blues

  20. Morning to the Management and the Technical team…………
    A draw for yesterday game was better then nothing though I still believe we could have collected the three points,…..Edwin and Swere need more time play to excel in such games as yesterday as we desperately needed to widen the gap…..The guys are still good…..and we can go far with them…. Lets have them playing in the next two to three games consecutively

    I just learnt GU intends to release Thabo Motang…we need this guy back in our goal keeping coaching department…..we need to start grooming those to replace Dambe and Maposa and he remains the best for this aspect in the country……the guy is a popa at heart……please please lets grab him………

  21. May I please get contacts of Mr Pheto. Its business related and I would like to contact him ASAP.
    Thanx in advance.

  22. i will always love u popa no matter in good or bad condition
