SAFF Championship likely to start from Sept 19

DHAKA The South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) is taking preparations to start the Bangabandhu SAFF Championship from September 19, the probable date to start the championship.

As we know that the SAFF Football is scheduled to be held in September.

So, we are thinking to fix a probable date (September 19) to start the

championship, though it's not the final date, said Anwarul Haque Helal,

general secretary of SAFF, while talking to BSS today.

He said they would discuss with the participating teams in this issue and

if the teams give their consent, then they would finally announce the date.

Bangladesh hosted the SAFF Championship in 2018 but this time Bangladesh

is going to host the Championship in second consecutive time to celebrate the

birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
