Yousuf said they had earlier send letters to participating clubs of the premier league requesting them to send their (club) representatives in the league committee’s meeting and among them seven club already responded our letter providing their representative names but Mohammedan Sporting Club and Dhaka Mariners Youngs Club did not send their representative’s names because some of the two club’s officials were suspended by the federation following a chaos in the league match between the two teams.

The acting BHF general secretary said the two clubs however communicated with the federation with the issue …. because if the BHF does not withdraw suspension on the two club’s officials, then how the two clubs will send names of their representatives. So to solve the matter the federation will sit on September 30 to discuss the premier league issue giving the most priority.
