The Saff Women’s Championship will be held in Nepal for the first time ever as the fifth edition of the tournament has been rescheduled to take place from March 12 to 22 next year. 

The seven-nation competition was earlier scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka at the end of this month, but later switched to Nepal’s capital Kathmandu. 

The venue is finally being settled to the current location in Biratnagar following request from the president of the All Nepal Football Association. Biratnagar’s Shaheed Rangashala Stadium will host all the matches.

Since its opening edition in Cox’s Bazar back in 2010, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and India hosted the tournament after every two years.

Having been placed in Group A, Bangladesh will kick off their campaign against Pakistan in the inaugural day on March 12 before facing Bhutan and Nepal on March 14 and 16 respectively. 

The semi-finals will be held on March 20, while the final is scheduled for March 22.

The senior women’s team’s last assignment was in November this year during the Asian qualifiers of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in Myanmar.
