Kathmandu, July 25
Nepal has received a conditional offer from the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) to host the 13th edition of the SAFF Championship in October this year.
SAFF General Secretary Anwarul Huq sent a conditional hosting letter to Nepal’s football-governing body, All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) General Secretary Indra Man Tuladhar to host the championship in Nepal, the ANFA says in a statement today.
The statement quotes General Secretary Tuladhar to say the ANFA will now prepare a detailed proposal of the championship and send it to SAFF for approval.
“The final decision regarding hosting will be taken in the SAFF executive meeting which will take place in the first week of August.”
After Bangladesh Football Federation pulled out as the host due to the rising coronavirus infections in the country during a recent SAFF meeting, Nepal got the offer.
The biennial men’s football championship has been held twice in Nepal, first in 1997 and second in 2013.
