Saff Club Championship 2023

The good news is team Pakistan will now participate in all international tournaments including SAFF Club and Country’s championship, they’ve been banned by FIFA previously.

A total of 10 clubs from 7 nations will participate in the first edition of the SAFF Club Championship which will be held in Bangladesh in 2023.

Such tournaments will be crucial to maintain and boost the sportsmen’s spirit for the game and experience. As there is no hiding that the South Asian team’s performance in Asian Championships is less than impressive.

We hope this viewership and players gain new experiences from this tournament.
