The Bangladesh-Sri Lanka friendly was scheduled for the afternoon but the surroundings of the Sheikh Kamal Stadium started taking festive shape since the morning

The roads leading to the match venue, the Kaborsthan Mor and Ukiler Mor, took the mood of a fair with both the roadsides filled up by various temporary shops selling mini Bangladesh flags, multi-designed caps in red and green colours, along with vuvuzelas and different food items.

Many painted their faces and hands with the colours of their flag while some held their son’s hands tightly with a worried look at the huge line in front of the entry gate, discussing among each other if they would get seats, despite buying a couple of match tickets after so many hassles.

The Bangladesh-Sri Lanka friendly was scheduled for the afternoon but the surroundings of the Sheikh Kamal Stadium started taking festive shape since the morning. 

Those spectators who booked their whole day to get the full taste of the historic game, gathered at the entry line three-four hours early.

The eastern, northern and southern gallery with no shed over it however, became almost half-packed two and a half hours prior to kick-off with even more waiting in the line outside amid hot sunny weather. 

The early-comers were entertained by the live concert, performed by local bands. 

Not a single seat was left empty one hour before the game.
