BFF to decide on Barca soon

The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) will soon sit in an emergency committee meeting to decide whether to host FC Barcelona in August this year after the four-time European champions offered the game's governing body of Bangladesh a chance to do so on Tuesday.

“Following the strike in the capital, I could not sit with my colleagues to discuss the matter of the Barcelona offer but I think we will sit in a meeting on Saturday or Sunday to decide whether we will go ahead,” said BFF president Kazi Salahuddin yesterday.

The BFF boss said that it would be easier to take a quick decision if the amount could be Tk 7 to 8 crore but the huge amount around Tk 50 crore has forced them to take some time before coming to a final decision.

However, the BFF boss told the reporters at his office that he had already spoken again to Beximco Group which sponsored the FIFA friendly between Argentina and Nigeria in September 2011 in Bangladesh.
