Nepal has finally been officially awarded the hosting rights of the SAFF Women's Championship in next March even though the draw of the seven-team tournament was finalised in July this year.
Sri Lanka was supposed to host the tournament in December this year, but the Sri Lankan authorities sought more time citing political instability in that country.
All 12 matches will be held at the Sahid Rangashala in Biratnagar, some 399 kilometres east of Nepal's capital Kathmandu.
Four-time champions India, Sri Lanka and Maldives were placed in Group B while hosts Nepal were pitted against last edition's runners-up Bangladesh, Pakistan and Bhutan.
