Bangladesh Hockey Federation Acting General Secretary Mohammed Yousuf on Saturday said that he was hopeful of getting the complete bylaws in the next few days to start the process of holding the much-awaited Premier Hockey League.
The premier league committee held a virtual meeting on the same day where they provided the responsibility to the bylaws committee to finalise the bylaws of the tournament, which didn’t take place after 2018.
“Without confirming the bylaws, we can’t announce the date of the player players’ registration window. The bylaws will be formed within three or four days. Then, we will sit physically after the lockdown and announce the players’ registration dates,” Yousuf told The Daily Sun after the meeting.National skipper Rasel Mahmud Jimmy was in shock to hear that the federation is still working on the bylaws as he expected to get back in the field soon.
“What have they done in all this time? We have been waiting for the league for a long time. If the league doesn't start soon, our hockey will lose many players,” said Jimmy.
Another national player Puskor Khisa Mimo feared that the league will be delayed again as BHF is yet to finalise the bylaws.
