Kathmandu – The National Women’s League scheduled to kick off this week under the initiative of the Women’s Committee of the All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) has been postponed until further notice.
The women’s league has been postponed indefinitely due to the risk of the third wave of Covid-19, informed ANFA’s General Secretary Indraman Tuladhar.
“We have decided to defer the league and write letters to the stakeholders regarding the postponement,” said Tuladhar, adding, “The league has been postponed until further notice.”
