Domestic: Tharu athletes, taekwondo boost, SAFF Champions League

  • Another terrific article by none other than Ayush Khadka (my English sports writer of the year) on the emegence of Tharu athletes in Nepal's sports sector. It is wonderful to see articles that explore beyond the surface of Nepal's sports sector.

  • Bishnu Auto Care has donated training equipment and offered cash rewards to the Nepal's SAG Taekwondo team.

  • The South Asian Football Federation is considering starting a club's champions league and other tournaments. They are also contemplating the idea of South Asian players not counting against the foreign quota in domestic leagues in the region. Anyone else find it intriguing that the change in leadership at SAFF has given way to fresh and new ideas?
