BCL scrapped

The BFF yesterday cancelled the scheduled Bangladesh Championship League (BCL).

The decision was made at an online meeting of the professional football league committee (PFLC) where nine out of 13 clubs joined, with BFF's senior vice-president Abdus Salam Murshedy in chair.

"We have taken this decision after discussing with the participating clubs. It comes as a continuation of the BFF executive committee's decision of abandoning the BPL and cancelling the Independence Cup. Most of the clubs expressed helplessness in managing funds for players. So, considering the clubs' financial constraints and the coronavirus situation, we have cancelled the BCL," BFF general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag said after the meeting.

However, BFF has decided to open players' transfer window for both the BPL and the BCL for the next season in the same time frame.
