The much-talked about election of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF), scheduled for April 20, has been postponed for indefinite period due to outbreak of deadly Coronavirus in the country and elsewhere in the world.
The Executive Committee of Bangladesh Football Federation on Friday (March 27) has decided to postpone the 'BFF Election and Congress 2020' due on April 20, 2020 unless the situation becomes normal and at the same time they will communicate the issue with FIFA and AFC for making necessary ratification.

Besides, any kind of public gathering is also banned at the moment in Bangladesh..

Earlier on March 24, the Professional Football League Committee (PFLC) of Bangladesh Football Federation postponed all the football leagues including the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Football, for indefinite period due to outbreak of the Coronavirus in the country.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Football Federation distributed food among the poor people on Friday (March 27) from BFF house due to lockdown situation for COVID 19 in Bangladesh. BFF will continue the program until lock down situation ends.
