 BFF awaits ANFA’s flight confirmation

Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) said on Monday that it will finalise schedule for friendlies between Bangladesh and Nepal after confirmation of charter flight by All Nepal Football Association (ANFA).

BFF said in a press release on Monday that ANFA would send an official letter after their flight confirmation.

Earlier, BFF invited ANFA to tour to play two friendly matches at Bangabandhu National Stadium here on November 11 and 17 respectively.

ANFA decided to start football training after their Dashain festival for friendlies against Bangladesh following approval from their sports council.

Bangladesh started training in early August for World Cup Qualifiers in October and November but FIFA/AFC deferred the qualifiers to next year due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

BFF was seeking to utilise FIFA's November window for friendly matches and proposed ANFA to play friendly matches in November.

Earlier, ANFA had scheduled training from August 17 for upcoming FIFA World cup qualifiers but the government didn't allow them to hold sessions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
