Bangladesh Football Federation First Vice-President and Dhaka Metropolitan Football League Committee Chairman Imrul Hassan said on Wednesday that they would be tough against match-fixing in the coming days.
He also said that if any teams proved involved with match-fixing, they would be relegated to the lower league.
Imrul further said that DMFLC took cognisance of clubs’ complaints and demands and we have already started to work on those issues.
“The clubs of Pioneer League requested to relax the players’ age rules but we denied them. Pioneer League will start on May 21 then the first division, second division and third division leagues will gradually take place,” Imrul added, who is also the President of Bangladesh Premier League champions Bashundhara Kings.
“We gave all necessary instructions to the clubs; they will get players’ transfer windows soon. The players’ transfer windows for the first and second divisions will be held at the same time so that one player can’t play in both leagues and the clubs will get a chance to find more players in Dhaka and outside of Dhaka,” he ended.
BFF vice-president Mohiuddin Mohi, general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag, BFF executive committee members, DMFLC members and representatives from BPL, BCL, first division, second division, third division and Pioneer leagues were also present there.
