Bangladesh Games to start on April 1

The ninth edition of the country’s biggest sporting event, Bangabandhu Bangladesh Games, will be held during April 1-10, almost exactly a year later than originally scheduled.

The Bangladesh Games, which was earlier slated for April 1-10 last year, was postponed for an indefinite period in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The executive committee of Bangladesh Olympic Association on Saturday announced the new date for the games – treated as the Olympics of Bangladesh – which will be held in the capital and divisional headquarters of the country.

Around 8,500 athletes, officials, technical delegates will be involved in the games, organised to mark the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The 8th and last Bangladesh Games was held in 2013 although the games were supposed to be held after every four years.

The Bangladesh Olympic Association meeting also decided that the country would participate in the 5th Islamic Solidarity Games during September 10-19 this year in Turkey and the 19th Asian Games from September 10-22 in China next year.

Bangladesh will compete in 13 disciplines in the Islamic Solidarity Games and 17 disciplines in the Asian Games.
