Expecting a few more to join from Bangladesh Premier League because BPL is no longer accepting foreign (non-Bangladeshi) players.
2 divisions. Top 6 from last year playing in the top division.
Columbia has asked to stay in the lower division. Smart.

Top 8 in each division to playoffs. Quarter, semi, and finals.
8 fields

  • One more?

Uniforms: 13 uniforms purchased along with registration fee.

I will ask that Columbia have no names and numbers. Tops will be given out before game and collected at the end. This will serve as a test case for similar system in coming years for all CCC teams.
If we want a practice game, we can contact league to pick up matting and play whenever.
Party on 7 April. We got 5 tickets.
