The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced a cash reward of 50 lac Taka for the National Women’s Football Team on Monday as they became champions in the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Women’s Championship. 

BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon has lauded the success of the women footballers, winning the SAFF Championship first time.

“The women’s football team has made the whole nation proud with its exceptional performance and historic achievement," he said.

“As a mark of our appreciation and support for their effort, I am declaring 50 lac Taka for the entire team on behalf of the BCB. I have no doubts that the SAFF triumph will greatly inspire sportsmen and women around the country and sports teams to strive for international glory in respective disciplines,” he added.

Bangladesh won the Saff Championship for the first time in the sixth edition beating Nepal (3-1) in the final, ending India's five-year dominance. The runners-up medal was presented to the hosts Nepal for the fifth time.
