The 13-team Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) football will kick-off on Wednesday when the defending champion Bashundhara Kings and Uttar Baridhara Club will face off in the opener at 4:00 PM.
The match will be played at Bangabandhu National Stadium.
The two opponents had met in a match of the abandoned 2020 BPL in February where Bashundhara won by 1-0.
For being in different groups, they didn’t get any chance to face each other in the lately finished Federation Cup football which was the season opener of 2021.
Bashundhara boys became champion of Federation Cup for the second consecutive time beating the newbie finalist Saif Sporting Club by 1-0 goal in the final on the last Sunday.
Uttar Baridhara was eliminated by Dhaka Abahani from the quarterfinals. Still the foreign recruits of the club amazed all with good performances.
The season opening event was a good platform for all the competitors of the league to show and polish skills as well as get prepared for rest of the season. Besides, the clubs and booters had passed almost a year idly due to an outbreak of the deadly virus last year. Now, the teams will be able to present their ability in the league this year.
