Kathmandu: The All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) has proposed to organize women’s SAAF championship football in August.

ANFA has proposed to hold the SAAF Championship in Kathmandu from 13 to 25 September.

ANFA general secretary Kiran Rai proposed the date during a meeting with South Asian Football Confederation (SAF) general secretary Anwarul Haque Helal in Dhaka, Bangladesh on Friday.
