Bordoloi Trophy kicks-off on Friday in Guwahati

The 61st edition of the Bharat Ratna Lokapriya Bordoloi Trophy in Guwahati was once the biggest tournament of the Northeast with even the Kolkata Maidan giants coming to the tournament and teams who were part of the old NFL (now I-League). But like many tournament across the country with the I-League being played for most of the season these top teams cannot make a trip to Guwahati.

The tournament used to also attract teams from abroad mainly from Thailand, Bangladesh and Nepal; but this year it will be completely Northeast affair as the organisers the Guwahati Sports Association is facing financial problems due to which clubs from the I-League Division 2 cannot be contracted to participate.

Still three teams from Shillong - Royal Wahingdoh FC, Langsning FC, Rangdajied FC; besides Nagaland Police, Oil India Limited and Assam Rifles plus six local teams from Guwahati will participate.

The tournament would kick-off on Friday with all matches set to be played at Guwahati's Nehru Stadium.
