DHAKA, – The Bangladesh Hockey Federation (BHF) wants to complete the inter-club players’ transfers for the premier hockey league by August.

“After the league committee’s meeting in the second week of August, we’ll hold a physical meeting and from that meeting we’ll announce the date of players’ transfer for the premier league. We want to complete the inter-club players’ transfers by August and want to hold the premier hockey league by September,” said the BHF acting general secretary Mohammad Yousuf to BSS today.

He said actually the federation is fully ready and cordial to start the league because the sponsor is ready and the ground is ready. If the clubs come forward to cooperate with the federation, it would be easier for the federation to start the league soon.
