The UKBFC is a unique initiative to promote Bangladeshi football on a national scale. This tournament is also a platform to network, build relations, share ideas and best practices and promote regional events. The founders and organisers of the UKBFC are made up of MK Galacticos based in Milton Keynes, the Inner London Football League (ILFL) based in London and the Shapla League based in Birmingham. The 2014 competition took place in Milton Keynes during the summer and the final was hosted in the MK Dons Stadium.
This is an invitation-only tournament and it is hoped that the event will be hosted at various locations throughout the UK each season. The event receives national media coverage in press and Sky TV via ILFL's media partners NTV (Sky 838). One off shows for draws and match analysis is also broadcast before and after the event on Monday nights at 8pm.
This prestigious competition is limited to 16 teams only and teams are advised to register their place well in advance of the event to secure a slot by contacting any one of the organising host committee members.
