</td></tr></tbody></table>Abahani has been placed in a slightly tough group when a draw for the final round of the Citycell Federation Cup was held at a local hotel yesterday.

The giants from Dhaka were included in group B along with two B. League teams Chittagong's Mohammedan and Abahani, while Jatrabari Krira Chakra is the other team.

Their traditional rivals Mohammedan were pitted in group D along with Arambagh Krira Sangha, Rahmatganj and Sunrise Sporting Club while the other Dhaka giants Brothers Union and Sheikh Russel were in group C with Victoria Sporting Club and BKSP.

Muktijoddha are in group A with Farashganj Sporting Club, Khulna Abahani and Dhaka Wanderers.

The final round of the season's curtain-raiser tournament will kick off on August 6 with Abahani taking on Jatrabari Krira Chakra in the opening game at the Bangabandhu National Stadium at 5pm. After the inaugural game there will be two matches everyday in the fixture.

A draw for the eleven B. League teams who got direct entries and five qualifiers, was held at a local hotel where top four teams of the inaugural B. League -- Abahani, Mohammedan, Muktijoddha and Russel -- were chosen to head the groups.

Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) didn't consider the last Federation Cup outcomes as it was held almost three years back where Brothers Union became champions and Muktijoddha were runners-up.

Top two teams from each group will qualify for the quarterfinals.

Famed television star Sadia Islam Mou and her celebrated actor husband Jahid Hasan were the main attractions in the ceremonial draw and they picked the tokens of the first two clubs, Muktijoddha and Abahani, to lead group A and B respectively.

Captain of Swadhin Bangla football team Zakaria Pintoo and star booter cum hockey player Pratap Sankar Hazra picked up the tokens for Sheikh Russel and Mohammedan to lead group C and D respectively.

Long serving national custodian Shahidur Rahman Shantu, Sultan Ahmed, Shahiduddin Ahmed Selim, Mosabbir Hossain, Kazi Jashimuddin Joshi, Elias Hossain, Mohammad Kaikobad, Bashir Ahmed, Kaiser Hamid, Abu Yousuf, Shafiqul Islam Manik and Ajmat Ali also drew the tokens of participating clubs.

"We have started to fulfill our commitment which we made before election that we want to take the game to the field," said BFF senior vice-president Salam Murshedi during the brief draw ceremony.

"We know that expectations are high on this committee led by Kazi Salahuddin and we are very focused on our job," added the former international.

This will be Mohamedan's excuse when they will come second to Abahani.

why do they always write MSC for mohammadan but only Abahani for Abahani Krira Chokro? shouldn't it be AKC too?

Abahani = Abahani Limited = former Abahani Krira Chokro
they did it 19 yrs ago :)

from WiKi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abahani_Krira_Chakra)- Abahani Club was made a limited company in 1989

Just came back from Abahani match (watched a football match @BNS after 8 years!!). They outplayed qualifying round champion Jatrabari KC by 4-0 in their opening Group B match. Ujjal missed a penalty in 5th minute but then he scored the lone goal at the last part of 1st half. In 2nd half Abahani played lot better and Emily scored the second goal at start of this half. Later foreign recruit (#12) scored twice and earned 3 valuable points in season opening match for Abahani.
Few thousand die hard Abahani fans watch this one sided match!! [বাংলা]পয়সা উসুল!![/বাংলা] :clap:

ফেডারেশন কাপে ৭ দিনের ছুটি

ঢাকা, আগস্ট ১১ (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম)---- ছেদ পড়েছে সিটিসেল ফেডারেশন কাপ ফুটবলে। বৃষ্টি, জাতীয় শোক দিবস ও শবেবরাত উপলক্ষে আগামী ১৭ আগস্ট পর্যন্ত বন্ধ থাকবে ফেডারেশন কাপের খেলা।

সোমবার বাফুফে সদস্য, বাইলজ কমিটির চেয়ারম্যান ফজলুর রহমান বাবুল জানিয়েছেন, "আগামী ১৭ আগস্ট পর্যন্ত খেলা বন্ধ রাখার সিদ্ধান্ত হয়েছে। মাঠের দিকটা বিবেচনা করে এবং শোকদিবস ও শবেবরাতের জন্য এই সিদ্ধান্ত নেওয়া হয়েছে।"

এতদিন নির্বিঘ্নে চলা ফেডারেশন কাপে প্রথম বাধা হয়ে দাঁড়িয়েছে বৃষ্টি, যে কারণে সোমবার নির্ধারিত দুটি ম্যাচের খেলা হয়নি। এর মধ্যে খেলা চালিয়ে নিলে বঙ্গবন্ধু জাতীয় স্টেডিয়াম পুরোপুরি খেলার অনুপযোগী হয়ে যাবে বলেই মনে করেন বাফুফে কর্তারা। তাই আবহাওয়ার উন্নতির জন্য অপেক্ষা এবং মাঠটিকে বিশ্রাম দিতে গিয়ে জাতীয় শোক দিবস ও শবেবরাতের সরকারি ছুটিকে হিসেবে নিয়ে একেবারে ৭ দিনের ছুটি দেওয়া হয়েছে ফেডারেশন কাপকে।

বঙ্গবন্ধু জাতীয় স্টেডিয়ামের ওপর চাপ কমাতে একটি বিকল্প মাঠও খোঁজা হচ্ছে। বাবুল বলেছেন, "আমরা গাজীপুর স্টেডিয়ামের কথা চিন্তা করছি। ৬/৭টি ম্যাচ সেখানে আয়োজন করা গেলে বঙ্গবন্ধু স্টেডিয়ামের ওপর চাপ অনেক কমে যায়। এ ব্যাপারে আগামীকাল (মঙ্গলবার) ক্লাবগুলোর সঙ্গে বসবো আমরা।"
এছাড়া ফেডারেশন কাপের কোয়ার্টার ফাইনাল শেষ হওয়ার পর আবারো লম্বা বিরতি থাকতে পারে। ওই সময় বি. লিগ শুরু করে দেওয়ার পরিকল্পনা করছে বাফুফে। সেক্ষেত্রে ঈদের পর ফেডারেশন কাপের সেমিফাইনাল ও ফাইনাল হতে পারে বলে জানা গেছে।
