JFA U-14 football from tomorrow

JFA U-14 National Women’s Football Championship will get underway tomorrow in different venues across the country after a one-and-a-half-year gap.

A total of 39 district teams, split into six groups, will take part in the knockout-basis preliminary round.

Jashore, Khagrachari, Gopalganj, Rajshahi, Mymensingh and Rangpur will host the preliminary round from June 17 to June 28 before the six venue champions and two best runners-up teams will head to the final round to be held in Dhaka from July 10.

“We have been holding this championship for a long time and it is a tournament for hunting talents from district level. Our coaches will be present at each venue and pick the right players for a final trial to be held in Dhaka,” said BFF women’s committee chief Mahfuza Akhter Kiron, who informed that some five to six districts withdrew names despite sending entries due to exams of the players.

Japan Football Association is funding the under-14 women’s championship since 2015 by providing US$ 30,000 while Walton came forward as co-sponsors with Tk 5 lakh and home appliances for best players of different venues.
