Women’s league to resume Nov 7

Tricotex 3rd Women’s Football League (WFL) is all set to be resumed from November 7, said women’s wing chief of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) Mahfuza Akter Kiron to The Daily Sun on Saturday.

“The league will resume from November 7 at the Kamalapur Stadium (Bir Shrestha Shaheed Sepoy Mostafa Kamal Stadium). Last week, we sent letters to all participating clubs and instructed them to resume camps ahead of the league,” said Kiron, also FIFA council member and BFF executive committee member.

BFF halted all international and domestic meets including women’s league due to pandemic outbreak countrywide in March. Later, the federation called off the season 2019-20 except the women's league last May.

This year, the league was taking place after a seven-year long break with the participation of seven teams -- Bashundhara Kings, Begum Anwara SC, FC Uttar Bongo, Nasrin SC, Cumilla United, Kacharipara XI and MK Gallactico Sylhet. Kings consolidated the top slot securing 15 points.

Nasrin SC are second earning 9 points, FC Uttar Bongo are third securing 7 points, Karcharipara are fourth securing 7 points Begum Anwara are fifth securing 6 points. Cumilla and Sylhet are yet to open accounts. 

The champions of the league will be awarded Tk 2 lakh and a gold-plated trophy while the runners-up will get Tk 1 lakh. Besides, each team will get participation money of Tk 2 lakh.

The first edition was held in 2011 where Sheikh Jamal DC clinched the title beating Dhaka Mohammedan and the second edition was held in 2013 where Dhaka Mohammedan emerged champions beating Dhaka Abahani Ltd.
