“Around Tk5-6 crores is required to run a football team. We couldn’t even pay the dues of the players from last season. When we are facing troubles paying wages to workers, how can we run football team?” said BJMC chairman Abdur Rouf, mentioning that around 1,800 workers lost their jobs including athletes from different sports

The Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) has closed its football team due to a lack of funds and asked the Bangladesh Football Federation to withdraw their team from the upcoming Bangladesh Championship League. 

A total 13 teams are set to participate in the league, which is set to begin on March 28.

“Around Tk5-6 crores is required to run a football team. We couldn’t even pay the dues of the players from last season. When we are facing troubles paying wages to workers, how can we run football team?” said BJMC chairman Abdur Rouf, mentioning that around 1,800 workers lost their jobs including athletes from different sports.

On February 10, Team BJMC sent a letter to the BFF informing of their inability to form the team for the championship league due to financial problems. The player transfer window of the second-tier league opened on the same day (February 10) and will continue until March 20.

BJMC, who are former league champions (1979) and Federation Cup winners (1980), stopped their football activities in the early 1980s after being relegated to second division, and made their return to top-flight in 2012.
