New football season anticipated to start in December!
8th December is the current fixed date to start the 2020/21 season!
FAM expects to start the DPL 2020/21 season in the upcoming December. Earlier this year, the new season was expected to begin in this year’s June. However, due to the outbreak of Covid-19, and also according to the work progress of the technical department of the association the new season is most likely to start in December 2020.
Another main reason for the delay in the start of the new season is because of the joint fixtures of FIFA World Cup qualification and AFC Asian cup. The fixtures are arranged to play in October/November. Furthermore, the AFC Cup, group stage fixtures for Maziya S&R, and TC Sports Club is also scheduled to play in the same months. Both teams have to travel to the neutral venue for the games. 8th December is the current precise date proposed for the start of the new season.
