DHAKA – The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) football resumes Friday at Bangabandhu National Stadium (BNS).
The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) today released the fixture of the second round with three matches billed on the opening day.

Instead of holding the matches in four venues — BNS, Ahsan Ullah Master Stadium in Tongi, Shaheed Dhirendranath Datta Stadium in Cumilla and Bir Flight Lieutenant Matiur Rahman Stadium in Munshiganj — the BFF has decided to use only BNS during the lockdown to maintain Covid-19 protocols.
