LALITPUR: The All Nepal Football Association hosting an invitational three-nation international football tournament from March 22-30 at the Dasharath Stadium.

After the FIFA World Cup and AFC Asian Cup joint qualifier match against Australia was cancelled, the ANFA "came up with the concept of organising the tournament in the gap". The national teams from Nepal and Bangladesh along with the U-23 side from Kyrgyzstan will take part in the tournament, said the ANFA on its website.

"The tournament will also have FIFA recognition and will be played in round robin format," said ANFA. After round robin league, top two sides will play in the final match.
