It was mentioned in the press conference that due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, all the activities of the world including sports and football have been affected and various football competitions of the ongoing football season have been canceled or the schedule has been changed. In addition, many football clubs and federations around the world have suffered financially due to the crisis of sponsoring organizations, and Bangladesh football is no exception.
However, the government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh followed the rules of FIFA and AFC in the face of adversity. It is mentioned that the league has been able to organize some competitions of women's football including "2020-21" and "Bangladesh Championship League 2020-21", "Federation Cup" and women's football league and "Third Division Football League 2019-20". However, due to the Covid-19 situation, the length of the football season has increased, making it difficult for the participating club football teams to meet their daily expenses and participate in the rest of the season. Considering the overall issues: “The 2020-21 football season will be ended by BFF by completing the game of Bangladesh Premier League 2020-21.
The sports calendar for the upcoming 2021-22 football season will be published by BFF as soon as possible and the 2021-22 football season will be launched through the Independence Cup football competition to mark the 50th anniversary of our independence.
