An exigence virtual meeting of the Bangladesh Football Federation concerning restart of Bangladesh Premier League ended without any judgement today. However,
the meeting chaired by SVP ABDUS SALAM MURSHEDY, suggested that the even though there be preparations made to start the league as soon as possible once the national lockdown is raised.
The first period of the league ended on March 7 and the second period was guessed to resume on April 9, but the lockdown developed the game’s local governing body to postpone the restart indefinitely.
BFF had, at that time, said that the league will resume within seven days of raising of lockdown, but the clubs are seemingly not in unity over the issue. Some clubs want the league resumed as soon as possible while others want it postponed beyond June, with ABAHANI and Bashundhara Kings’ AFC Cup engagement and national team’s World Cup Qualifiers in mind. Today’s meeting, though, forced
on keeping things such as fixtures and grounds prepared so that once the lockdown is raised and clubs come to a unity , the league can be resumed in shortest possible time.
