Chukha CS booked its place in the final after defeating Norbugang CS 4-2 in the semifinal on October 11.

Yangchenphug HSS knocked out the defending champions Ugyen Academy 6-5 in the penalty shootout after the match ended 1-1 draw in regular time on October 10.

The primary phase of the BHSSFC in April saw 80 HSSs from 20 dzongkhags.

The BHSSFC not only encourages students’ active participation in football but also aims to nurture their talent and provide a platform for young players to develop their skills.

BHSSFC began last year.  The tournament is organised in collaboration between the BFF and the DYS. The BFF provides technical support and funding, while the DYS coordinates the games.
