Since their debut in country’s professional football arena, Bashundhara Kings have been continuing to write their success stories one after another. The latest inclusion in this glorious story is the title of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), a top tier of Bangladeshi professional football league pyramid. Despite a 1-1 draw against another giant Abahani Ltd Dhaka in the last match of the season, the Kings have retained the league title ending the season with 65 points, the second highest in BPL history. Though the team has ensured their table-topper position a month back, the trophy was handed over to them on Monday last. Clinching two titles in just two appearances, along with three other major trophies in just two completed seasons (2019-20 season was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic), is surely a great achievement for any professional team. We congratulate the Kings for this great accomplishment and hope that they will continue their success in the future.

By performance, it was an excellent season for the winners as they were very close to unbeaten championship (only one defeat and two draws among a number of encounters) throughout the season. The team management will surely be satisfied with such performance of the team. However, it is the country’s soccer lovers who are really happy to see the rise of a team that plays better football compared to other local clubs and can compete with foreign clubs. Their foreign inclusions like Daniel Colindres or Fernandes or Becerra have added new dimensions to country’s football.

Besides just on-field performance, Bashundhara Kings management has brought a huge change in the idea of professionalism in the game, which has been proven through their laudable style of players’ signing. Their commitment to soccer is also praiseworthy. While most of the teams want to restrict them in the capital, Bashundhara Kings select Sheikh Kamal Stadium located in Nilphamari district in the northern part of the country only to revive the craze for football once again across the country.

We hope that along with winning the hearts of country’s soccer lovers through their on-field performance, the Kings will contribute a lot to changing the soccer culture of the country through their off-field activities, with the intention of improving the overall standard of Bangladesh football.

Best of luck!
