Mohammedan raise Tk 1m in Tangail
Mohammedan Sporting Club drew blank on the field in their second charity game at the Tangail Stadium yesterday, but the match of the Black and Whites against the local selection generated quite a handsome amount for the Sidr victims of the country.
The match ended in a goalless draw in front of a strong 10,000 crowd and the Tangail District Sports Association later disclosed that they had earned Taka 10 lakh from the charity game. The money would be donated to the Chief Adviser's Relief Fund.
It was Mohammedan's second match for a noble cause after their first game in Sylhet on Friday.
Mohammedan will also play a three-match series against their bitter rivals Abahani at the Bangabandhu National Stadium on December 3, 5 and 7. The money coming from the games would also be donated for the Sidr victims.
Cyclone Sidr ravaged the southern coastal districts of the country on November 15, leaving hundreds of thousands people homeless.
Meanwhile, Tangail's Deputy Commissioner Akhter Ali Sarkar and Major Gen AKM Mujahid Uddin, GOC of Ghatail Cantonment, witnessed the 70-minute game.
