The much-talked about election of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF), scheduled for 20 April, has been postponed for indefinite period due to outbreak of deadly Coronavirus in the country and elsewhere in the world, reports UNB.
The executive committee of Bangladesh Football Federation on Friday (27 March) has decided to postpone the ‘BFF Election and Congress 2020’ due on 20 April 2020 unless the situation becomes normal and at the same time they will communicate the issue with FIFA and AFC for making necessary ratification.
The BFF took the decision as the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 a pandemic and the government of Bangladesh imposed a nationwide lockdown from 26 March to 4 April 2020 to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. Besides, public gatherings are also banned at the moment in Bangladesh.
However, the BFF will inform latest development about the matter from time to time. Earlier on 24 March, the Professional Football League Committee (PFLC) of Bangladesh Football Federation postponed all the football leagues including the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Football, for indefinite period due to outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Football Federation distributed food among the poor people on Friday (27 March) from BFF house due to lockdown situation for COVID 19 in Bangladesh. BFF will continue the program until lock down situation ends.
