Bengaluru FC’s AFC Cup Playoff Match Indefinitely Postponed
Indian club Bengaluru FC‘s AFC Cup play-off match, scheduled to be held on April 28, has been indefinitely postponed as the preliminary game to decide their opponents is yet to take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BFC, runners-up in 2016, were drawn to play the winners of the match between six-time Bangladesh Premier League champions Abahani and Maldives’ Eagles.
Abahani were scheduled to host Eagles on April 14 at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka but the countrywide lockdown due to the pandemic forced the hosts to suspend the match. The match was then scheduled for April 21 in Kathmandu but travel restrictions came in the way.
“As of now you can say that BFC’s next match stands indefinitely postponed. BFC can’t play till the other game is played as they are supposed to meet the winner of that game,” a source close to BFC told.
