Two more teams Afghanistan and Nepal arrived in Dhaka yesterday to complete the foreign teams’ line-up in the five-nation Bangamata Asian Senior Central Zone (CZ)  Women’s Volleyball Championship 2019 to take place from November 9-14 in Dhaka. All the matches will be held at Shaheed Suhrawardy Indoor Stadium in the capital.

Maldives and Kyrgyzstan have already reached the capital on Wednesday. The five teams will take part in a round robin league system with top two teams to play in the final on November 14. Meanwhile, Bangladesh Volleyball Federation (BVF) General Secretary Ashiqur Rahman Miku told a press conference at BOA auditorium yesterday, “This is the first women’s international volleyball tournament is being organized in Bangladesh. Though Bangladesh girls have a little or no experience of playing international matches.”

Tournament Steering Committee Chairman Mohammed Yunus, KyCych Sarbaglyshec, secretary general of Asian Central Zone Volleyball and FIVB (World Volleyball Federation) Technical Director Yazdanapanah Masoud also spoke on the occasion.

“We have decided to host the tournament with an aim to set up an infrastructure for women’s volleyball from grassroots and also to organise a number of tournaments at national level as well as involving the school girls,” said Miku, who hoped that in near future Bangladesh could become a formidable team in the Asia Central Zone.

Replying to a question he said this time the BVF doesn’t expect too much from the girls as they are just beginners and for last three months they are preparing for the tournament.

“I think the girls can give a good account of themselves, utilizing the experience and match temperament from Bangamata International Tournament, in the upcoming XIII South Asian Games to be held in Kathmandu from December 1 to 10.” He further said that the Bangabandhu Asian Men’s Senior Central Zone Tournament will also be staged in Dhaka next March.

KyCych Sarbaglyshec informed that there are 14 countries in Asian Central Zone and they are divided into two tiers. Bangladesh along with eight other countries have been place in Tier-II and the rest five in Tier-I. “World ranking Iran, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have been drawn in Tier-I. Out of nine countries in Tier-II, five are taking part in Bangamata Tournament.

FIVB Technical Director Yazdanapanah Masoud stated that after his arrival here he visited tournament venue. “I think it will take a little more time to make the venue ready for international matches. He appreciated BVF’s move to host the tournament to popularize women’s volleyball in the country.
