Fakirapool seal second tier football crown
Fakirapool already confirmed their promotion to the Bangladesh Premier League last week with a game in hand while newly formed Saif Sporting Club are the other team from the second tier to get promoted to the top flight after finishing runners-up. Both the clubs will play in the professional football league for the first time in history. After the end of all 14 rounds, Fakirapool finished at the summit with a solitary point lead over Saif Sporting Club. Agrani Bank placed third with 20 points. Chittagong Mohammedan were relegated from the second tier having finished bottom with only 10 points. Back to the last game, Mohammed Ullah Dalim put Fakirapool ahead in the second minute before Farhad equalised the margin for Chittagong Mohammedan in the 69th minute. Defender Rahmat Mia sealed victory in the 79th minute from a penalty.
