The BFF has banned Bashundhara Kings defender Sushanta Tripura for eight matches, while striker Towhidul Alam Sabuj and Abahani Limited defender Mamun Mia both received six-game suspensions each due to their involvement in the physical clash during the late stages of the Federation Cup final last week at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.
