In Bangladesh, cricket and hockey are pushing football hard for its place as the nation's number one sport. Victories at an invitation tournament in Myanmar in 1995, the 8th SAF Games Football Tournament in Nepal in 1995 and the 3rd SAFF Championship on own home soil in 2003 are the most significant honours of the Bangladesh Football Federation. In the 1980s and 1990s, several home-grown players ventured abroad. From 1991 to 1993, top Indian clubs East Bengal and Mohammedam from Calcutta signed a total of 10 footballers from their neighbours. Bangladesh's best-known players are Kazi Salahuddin (played in Hong Kong in 1979) and Md. Kawser Hamid (Kolkata Mohammedan S/C), who since the end of their playing careers have devoted their time to development work in their home country - both at club and international level.
In an amendment to the project to build a national training centre 40km from the capital, on 22 October 2008 the Goal Bureau approved the laying of an artificial turf pitch adjacent to the association headquarters and technical centre in Dhaka. This will provide optimum training conditions for national teams of all age groups and levels that will remain unchanged all year round.
AFC World Cup Qualifiers
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 46 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia, transcontinental nations such as Turkey and Russia are instead in the UEFA, whereas countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Israel are entirely in Asia (Central or Western Asia) and still members of the UEFA. On the other hand, Australia, formerly in the OFC, has been in the AFC since 2006, in the same way as the Oceanian nations of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, which are also members of AFC.
