Doubts over BPFL kick-off

  • Published at 12:25 pm March 30th, 2015

Uncertainty has surrounded the Bangladesh Premier Football League again as the participant clubs demanded a bigger package of appearance money from the Bangladesh Football Federation yesterday.

In a meeting of the Professional League Committee of the BFF, the participant clubs failed to reach a conclusion over the amount of the appearance money for this season. In the last few years, BFF provided a purse of Tk1m to the clubs but this year the clubs raised their voice over increasing the money. They demanded a purse of Tk2.5m for each of the 11 participant clubs.  BFF did not rule out the demand yet but as they do not have sponsors, football’s governing body of the country is struggling to come up with any answers. Sources in the BFF said it might try to increase the amount but at the moment they are undecided. The meeting was scheduled to finalise the kick-off date but was adjourned for an indefinite period. In the earlier meeting, it was decided that the tentative date of kickoff will be April 3.

The Bangladesh Premier Football League has already been marred by delays and usually the summit league of the country starts within three to five days after the curtain-raiser tournament – Federation Cup. This season’s Federation Cup concluded on March 5.

It will be the eighth edition of the Bangladesh Premier Football League.
