The newcomer, Daga United FC, with 14 points from six games, has become the first team to secure a spot in the upcoming Bhutan Premier League (BPL) 2024, emerging victorious from the ongoing Pepsi BPL Qualifiers.

The undefeated Daga United FC recently secured their place in the BPL 2024 without suffering any losses. In their latest match, they triumphed over Tsirang FC with a commanding 3-0 victory, solidifying their spot in the upcoming league.

The BPL is set to kick off in May, with Daga United FC now confirmed as one of its participants.

With Daga United on board, seven out of the ten teams slated for the BPL 2024 have been finalised.

Three spots will be determined through the remaining matches of the ongoing Pepsi BPL Qualifiers.

As the league progresses into its final round, the anticipation builds for the selection of the final contenders to complete the lineup for the upcoming BPL season.

Daga’s coach, Ngawang Dendup, said, “I am glad that the team made it to the BPL. For the BPL, the team will recruit a few more players to make it convenient. BPL takes longer duration and we need back-up players.”

Ngawang Dendup said the team succeeded in the Pepsi League because of the players’ confidence and hard work, their teamwork, and the impressive skills of the players.

“For the BPL, we will try our best to ensure a competitive match,” he said.  

For the three remaining seats, Ugyen Academy FC, Southern City FC, Tsirang FC, Phuentsholing Heroes FC, and Samtse FC are all prepared to do their best in the final moments.

All teams are scheduled to play seven games. 

Apart from Samtse FC, Thimphu Raven FC, and Namlha FC, who have completed five games as of yesterday, the other teams have one game remaining to play.

As of yesterday, Ugyen Academy FC had 11 points, while Southern City FC and Tsirang FC each had 10 points. Phuentsholing Heroes FC had nine points, and Samtse FC had seven points.

Thimphu Raven FC and Namlha FC were able to secure a point each.

This week, Samtse FC will play against Ugyen Academy FC and Namlha FC. Southern City FC will face Daga United FC, Tsirang FC will compete against Thimphu Raven FC, and Phuentsholing Heroes FC will face Namlha FC.
