AFC U-16 C'ship

BFF not to send team

The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) yesterday decided not to send its squad to the qualifying round of the AFC Under-16 Championship in Philippines citing financial crisis as the reason.

Monday was the last date of sending the entries for the Group E qualifiers and the BFF wrote to the Asian Football Confederation that they were not able to send the squad due to financial problem despite having full preparation for the event.

Bangladesh wanted to host the Group E qualifiers in Chittagong, but the AFC awarded Philippines to host the matches with each of participating six nations paying 22,000 dollars for accommodation, food and transport.

Bangladesh were supposed to play against Japan, Indonesia, Mongolia, Chinese Taipei and hosts Philippines.
