The meeting also decided to give the responsibility of league organising committee to former national team player Bigyan Raj Sharma, who will consult with stakeholders before deciding the format and date within 10 days. Vice-president Upendra Man Singh was named the Coordinator of Grassroots Programmes, while another Vice-president Bir Bahadur Khadka was handed the responsibility of District Coordination Committee. Likewise, Vice-president Krishna Thapa got the responsibility of Technical Committee.
The meeting decided to form committee to amend the statute and follow the National Sports Council’s financial guidelines until the formulation of the finance regulations. The meeting formed five-member Steering Committee under President Sherpa with four vice-presidents as members and general secretary and treasurer being the ex-officio members apart from deciding to form discipline committee and marketing and education department.

Similarly, Member Dawa Lama was named the coordinator of Coca-Cola Inter-school Football Tournament and the meeting decided to provide Rs 50,000 each to all district associations to conduct the tournament. Likewise, the meeting decided to hold ANFA President’s Cup in district, province and national levels and President Sherpa will form the committee to conduct the tournaments.
