Tongi hosts its first BPL match Wednesday

Bangladesh Premier League is recommencing Wednesday with the match between Uttar Baridhara and Brothers Union at 3:00 pm and Shaheed Ahsanullah Master Stadium, Tongi in Gazipur is finally becoming a football venue hosting this match.

The Tongi stadium will be starting its journey as an official football match host through the match
and in this regard, the officials of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) will attend an inaugural programme there before the match.

But it was not an easy task to roll football there. BFF had to struggle a lot to get the venue for league matches defying another sporting federation Bangladesh Archery Federation (BAF).

The archery federation was not willing to share the venue with BFF since the stadium is home to country’s archers now-a-days and BAF invested lots of money and time to make it suitable for archery. Yet they had to comply after National Sports Council (NSC) intervened into the matter. Thus the fans are going to enjoy football matches in Tongi from now on.

However, it is not the only match to be played on the day. There are two more matches of BPL on the same day and these will be played at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka. Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club and Arambagh Krira Sangha will play at 3:30 pm and Rahmatganj Muslim Friends Society and Bashundhara Kings will engage at 6:00 pm in these matches.
