An online meeting of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) Technical Committee, chaired by its Chairman and BFF Vice-President Tabith Awal, held on Sunday at 2:40 pm. BFF General Secretary Md Abu Nayeem Shohag, BFF executive committee member Amirul Islam Babu, manager of BFF competition committee Zaber Bin Taher Ansari and other were present there.
The Technical Committee takes four decisions in the day’s meeting:
BFF will recognize 120 football academies for boys throughout the country. These academies are run by individuals or organizations. BFF will certify them and provide different assistance.
To launch four camps at the grassroots level with the purpose of ‘inclusivity’. BFF will train different age-level footballers (both boys and girls), physical disabilities and other non-professional footballers.
The committee recommended to the BFF executive committee to re-contract Paul Smalley as BFF technical and strategic director. The 53-year-old English man had been working with BFF for more than three years from August 2016 to October 2019. BFF executive committee will make the final decision.
Under AFC coach convention, the committee decided to provide new certificates to its all AFC A, B, C license holder coaches who got their certificates before 2016. It’ll update the coaches. An online service will be launched to make the process easier.
