Bangladesh Football Federation election postponed

The much-talked-about election of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF), scheduled for April 20, has been postponed for an indefinite period due to the outbreak of deadly coronavirus in the country and elsewhere in the world.   

The Executive Committee of Bangladesh Football Federation on Friday (March 27) has decided to postpone the ‘BFF Election and Congress 2020’ due on April 20, 2020, unless the situation becomes normal and at the same time they will communicate the issue with FIFA and AFC for making necessary ratification.

The BFF took the decision as the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 a pandemic and the government of Bangladesh imposed a nationwide lockdown from March 26 to April 4, 2020, to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. Besides, any kind of public gathering is also banned at the moment in Bangladesh.

However, the BFF will inform the latest development about the matter from time to time. Earlier on March 24, the Professional Football League Committee (PFLC) of Bangladesh Football Federation postponed all the football leagues including the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Football, for an indefinite period due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus in the country.

Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Football Federation distributed food among the poor people on Friday (March 27) from BFF house due to movement restriction situation for COVID 19 in Bangladesh. BFF will continue the program until situation ends.
