Bangladesh Football Federation President Kazi Salahuddin on Wednesday said that he was yet to get confirmation from Nazmul Hassan Papon for using Fatullah stadium.

Salahuddin earlier on February 16 requested Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul over the phone to give his consent to temporarily arrange domestic football leagues including first, second and third divisions at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium.

“He (Nazmul) is yet to inform us about the Fatullah stadium. He earlier told me that he will inform us. We ask Nazmul for Fatullah stadium as the ground didn’t host any cricket match in the last 3 years,” Salahuddin told the reporters in the inaugural function of Third Division Football League in Kamalapur.

BFF Vice-President and Dhaka Metropolitan Football League Committee Chairman Imrul Hassan, BFF General Secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag and other distinguished personalities were also present there.

 Tangail Football Academy beat Fakirerpool Shurjo Torun Shangha by 2-0 goals in the opening match of the league.
