The executive committee meeting of the All Nepal Football Association today introduced the National League and decided to organise the Martyrs Memorial A Division League and ANFA President Cup.

The meeting, chaired by ANFA President Karma Tsering Sherpa, decided to organise the Martyrs Memorial A Division League from November 28 and hold the President Cup and National League by mid-April next year. According to the ANFA, top six teams from Martyrs Memorial A Division League and top four from President Cup will compete in the National League.

A total of seven teams — winners of Province Leagues — will take part in President Cup which will be organised by ANFA itself. The ANFA also nominated the convenors to conduct Province Leagues — Kiran Rai (Province-1), Nepal Karki (Province-2), Babukaji Basnet (Province-3), Bhupendra Jung Thapa (Province-5), Bhim Bahadur Thapa (Province-6) and Prakash Bista (Province-7). The meeting also decided to nominate Province-4 convenor at the earliest after consulting the stakeholders.

Likewise, deputy Treasurer Rajendra Neupane received the responsibilities of Lalit Memorial U-18 Football Tournament, while Member Pema Dolma Lama will look after the Deputy Mayor Cup Inter-Municipality Women’s Football Tournament. Also, the meeting decided to categorise mofussil tournaments from the upcoming fiscal year after approving the paper.

The ANFA raised the players’ daily allowances to $25 — increment of $5 — while playing in international friendly matches. Also, the football governing body decided to coordinate with Lalitpur FA to construct dressing rooms and toilet at the Buddhi Bikash Mandal grounds in Lalitpur under the Grassroots Programme.
