Kathmandu, November 28

India, like Pakistan, have withdrawn their name from the men’s football event at the South Asian Games due to start in Nepal next week. Officials say India withdrew their name in the last moment.

After the withdrawal, there will be only five teams–Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Hence, the competition will be held in a round-robin format.

Nepal’s first match in the competition will be against Bhutan on December 3.

Earlier, the organisers had already published the fixture, dividing two major powerhouses–Nepal and India–into different groups.
