Bashundhara Kings likely to withdraw from Women’s League

Bashundhara Kings may withdraw from the 3rd Women’s Football League’ 2019-20 condemning Bangladesh Football Federation’s (BFF) autocratic decision of reopening the booters registration window for the league.

The first phase of booters registration held from January 11 to 26, but BFF reopened the window for five days from February 8 to 12.

Kings President Imrul Hassan said, “BFF’s decision to reopen window is unfair and unethical. They reopened the window after 12 days of booters’ registration. If they made any player transfers in this window, we will obviously withdraw our participation from the league.”  

A total of eight teams are going to take part in the league this year. They are:  Bashundhara Kings, Begum Anwara Sporting Club, Nasrin Sporting Club, Kacharipara Ekadash, FC Uttar Bongo, Kumilla United, Shopnochura and Akkelpur Football Academy and Spartan MK Gallactico Sylhet FC.

Kings signed 23 booters including 19 national players to form a strong team the upcoming Women’s Football League’2020.

Meanwhile, the first edition of the women’s football league was held in 2011 where Lt Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club Ltd clinched the title beating Dhaka Mohammedan. Since the last edition of the league in 2013, Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) showed no interests of arranging the league. Dhaka Mohammedan Limited emerged champions in the last edition beating Dhaka Abahani Limited.
