The Bangladesh Football Federation decided to host Group E matches of the 2023 AFC U-17 Asian Cup qualifiers on October 1-10 this year in Dhaka.

Bangladesh were put in the four-team Group E along with Yemen, Singapore and Bhutan. Though the committee didn’t announce the venue, the matches are likely to be held at the Bir Shrestha Shaheed Shipahi Mostafa Kamal Stadium in Kamalapur.

The committee also decided to send the U-17 team to the upcoming SAFF U-17 Championship, scheduled to be held on September 5-14 in Sri Lanka.

The committee also recommended a two-year contract extension for Technical Director Paul Smalley based on his performance and allowed BFF Elite Football Academy to compete in both the upcoming premier league and championship league.
