Initially, the decision was made not to send the men's team However, the issue of Jamal's participation in Asiad has not been completely closed, one of the vice-presidents of BAFUF said, "BAFUF has not been officially informed by BOA yet. BOA issued a press release yesterday. There is football. Men's football is still being discussed. A few issues have not yet been decided A decision will also be made about men's football. One of the vice-presidents of the BOA, Sheikh Bashir Ahmed Mamun, said that the issue of men's football will also be reconsidered along with e-sports. "We will also consider men's football while finalizing a few other things including e-sports." In 2018, Bangladesh men's football team had the best result in history at the Jakarta Asian Games.

The Jamals reached the second round for the first time in Asian Games football. Bangladesh also lost to Qatar. Therefore, despite the negative decision on men's football in yesterday's meeting, Jamal Bhuiader's Asiad door is not yet completely closed, one of the vice-presidents of BOA also thinks. There is a FIFA window from September 4-12. The AFC will again have club competition during the Asian Games in September. All the coaches are given instructions from the national team committee, 'There are national team, under-23 and club international matches in September. The coach has been asked to list the players and plan accordingly, said Kazi Nabil Ahmed. There may be another meeting this month on more issues related to the national team.
