    BG Brothers recorded their first win in the Red Bull National Futsal League with a 7-1 hammering of Kirtipur Futsal on Sunday.

    Played at the own home court, Akash Lama and Rajendra Deula both scored hat-tricks to help open their team’s account in the league. Prakash Tamang scored another goal for the hosts. Apex Maharjan pulled a consolation goal for the visitors. Lama was named man-of-the-match.

    Hosts Baneshwor Recreation Centre were held to a 5-5 draw by visiting Adarsha Futsal. Man-of-the-match Kurfew Rasaili struck a hat-trick and Manish Rana scored another goal for Baneshwor, who also got another goal courtesy an own goal.  Samir Karki and Raju Budathoki scored braces and Utsav Rana added another goal for Adarsha.

    Kickoff Futsal lead the Group ‘A’ standings with nine points, while Sankhamul Futsal are atop the Group ‘B’ standings with six points. Kumari and Tahachal also have six points each in the group.

    In all, 16 teams are taking part in the tournament organised by the AMA Events. The champions will earn Rs 1 million and runners-up will walk away with Rs 500,000. The best player and the best goalkeeper of the tournament will receive Rs 50,000 each.




    The High Court on Friday cleared All Nepal Football Association (Anfa) to go ahead of with its scheduled election that will elect president and vice-president on October 24.

    The court had on September 30 issued a stay order to halt the election procedure responding to a writ petition filed by referee committee’s Binod KC and the football governing body’s former general secretary Lok Bahadur Shahi. The duo had filed the writ claiming that the impending election was illegitimate. The court had summoned five defendants, including Sports Minister Daljit Shripali, National Sports Council Member Secretary Keshav Bista and Anfa, on  Oct 21.

    Acting Anfa president Narendra Shrestha and vice-president Karma Tshiring Sherpa are fighting for the top post in the football governing body. The regional football governing body— the Asian Football Confederation—had directed Anfa to hold elections for new president after Fifa slapped a 10-year ban on disgraced former president Ganesh Thapa for bribery and corruption.

    The Anfa general assembly will also elect a new vice-president to fill the vacancy left after the demise of Lalit Krishna Shrestha, who had died over a year ago. Former national team goalkeeper/skipper Upendra Man Singh, ex-central committee member Dipak Khati and Mani Kunwar are running for vice-president post.

    Many origins of an ancient people

    Many scholars of Nepali society and culture argue that Gopal Singh Nepali’s The Newars is the first detailed work on any Nepali ethnic group. Written in the late ’50s, when the author was a scholar at Bombay University, it not only granted him a doctorate degree but also made him one of the most important names in Nepali sociology.

    Preserving memories, sparking conversations

    The second iteration of Photo Kathmandu opened in Patan Museum, Patan Durbar Square on Friday, amid a crowd of artists, storytellers, the Valley’s denizens and photo enthusiasts from around the world. Now, the festival’s 12 print exhibition venues—all located around Patan’s core, and Bungamati—are open for public viewing. It will be impossible for one to go around and visit all the venues in one day, but it is certainly possible to choose a route and spend a few hours of your Saturday gazing at different images that tell different stories of different people and different spaces. We’ve come up with one that you can embark on today. It is a route that you can cover on foot, so put on your walking shoes, maybe grab a bottle of water, and start your weekend journey with Photo Kathmandu.
