BPL resumes at BNS on Friday

Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) yesterday confirmed resumption of the Bangladesh Premier League on Friday according to its previous decision despite the extension of the ongoing lockdown by another week.

Instead of holding the matches in four venues -- Dhaka, Gazipur, Cumilla and Munsiganj, the game's local governing body decided to use only one venue, that of Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka, during the lockdown to maintain Covid-19 protocols while adhering to government restrictions.

BFF's senior vice-president Abdus Salam Murshedy informed that they would hold two to three matches per day to complete three to four rounds before the Eid-ul-Fitr vacation. Besides, the AFC Cup fixture of Abahani has also forced them to matches more frequently.

Replying to a query, Murshedy said, "Health is our first priority and we have made it mandatory for everyone involved with the matches to have Covid-19 tests. The teams will have to submit Covid-19 test reports 72 hours before the start of respect matches."
