Bhojpur FA to prepare grounds by this season


The Bhojpur District Football Association began constructing a football stadium in the district with an investment of Rs 427,000.

Though the District Development Committee had purchased a land around six years ago and a stadium was constructed there, it was not suitable for any match, informed Association Chairman Praveen Suwal.

"Bhojpur players were forced to restrict themselves in nine-player matches for want of the stadium," Suwal said, "But, with this stadium, the football sector will advance in the district."

The 100 metre long and 65 metre wide stadium will be constructed in Kodar, Bhojpur Municipality-7.

Conducting big-scale matches had remained a problem in the district for years due to lack of a standard stadium. "But, such matches can be held in this new stadium," Association General Secretary Saphal Kirant said.

The Association has called stakeholders to provide support to the construction project.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has fined US$ 2,000 to All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) for breaching the regulations of AFC U-16 Championship 2014 held in Bangkok, Thailand in September, 2014.

According to AFC Disciplinary Committee Decisions on November 28, 2014, ANFA was fined for violating the Eligibility of Players' Article 22.2 of the AFC U-16 Championship 2014 regulations under the Eligibility of Players. ANFA is also ordered to disburse the fine within 30 days.

"All Nepal Football Association is ordered to settle the fine within 30 days from the date that this decision is communicated in accordance with Article 15.3 of the Code."

Nepal had fielded over-aged players, who were not eligible for the championship during the match against Uzbekistan and DPR Korea, according to AFC.

However, AFC has not unveiled the names of the players, who were ineligible for the U-16 Championship in its list of the AFC Disciplinary Committee Decisions.

With the decision, victory has been awarded to Uzbekistan and DPR Korea in the matches they played against Nepal.

Nepal had played 1-1 draw with Uzbekistan and lost to DPR Korea with a score of 4-1 during the U-16 Championship.

ANFA is further warned of severe penalty, if such violation is repeated in future.
