Bakhas Women FC from Thimphu won the first edition of the Bhutan Football Federation’s (BFF) open futsal championship for women yesterday in Thimphu.

The team defeated Wanakha Women FC 2-0 in the finals at Changjiji sports arena.

Ten teams from Thimphu and Paro took part in the championship that started on March 20. Three teams dropped out at the last moment.

The tournament was supposed to complete on April 1. However, due to the nationwide Covid-19 vaccination programme, the competition got deferred for a week. All the games were held at the centralised venue at Changjiji.

The tournament was free, and the teams didn’t pay an entry fee.

Organiser Passang Tshering from BFF said that the federation gave Nu 10,000 to all the participating teams as a subsidy. “Our motive is to encourage women in both football and futsal. I expected only five to six teams, but 13 registered initially.”

Club and national players were not allowed in this tournament, “It was to provide opportunity to women who don’t get a chance to play,” he said.

Along with the rolling trophy, Bakhas Women FC was awarded Nu 50,000, and Wanakha Women FC got Nu 30,000.

The BDFL Women FC won the fair play award. The club got Nu 15,000. Anita Rai of Bakhas was the most valuable player. She got Nu 5,000.

Passang Tshering said that this tournament would not be an annual event hereafter. “BFF club women futsal championship will be conducted soon.”

Games were conducted with strict compliance to Covid-19 protocol, and desuups were deployed at the venue.
