Fed Cup likely from June 10

The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) yesterday confirmed the deferral of the Federation Cup for an indefinite period after a majority of the 12 clubs denied to participate.

“We asked all the clubs to send entry to the Federation Cup, but most of the clubs didn't agree to play before the national team's matches next month,” BFF's senior vice-president Abdus Salam Murshedy said after a meeting of the professional league committee yesterday.

“The Federation Cup will not start from tomorrow [today] for the interest of the national team. We have to consider the interests of the clubs as well, as they [clubs] sacrificed a lot by releasing their players,” said Murshedy.

Murshedy hinted that the Federation Cup may begin from June 10, three days after the national team's Asian Cup qualifying play-offs second-leg match against Tajikistan at home.

Meanwhile, it has been learnt that national team's head coach Lodewijk de Kruif will arrive here on Tuesday morning to take charge of the training camp.
