India’s inability to take part, forced The South Asian Football Federation (SAAF) to postpone the SAFF Cup to May 2018. The tournament was originally scheduled to take place Bangladesh this December.
Team India has dominated the tournament winning the championship in 1993, 1997, 1999, 2005, 2009, 2011 and 2015. However, the Afghans have decided to withdraw from the tournament to compete in South East Football tournaments.
The sides yet to win a championship is Pakistan, Nepal and Bhutan. Sri Lanka has one win, way back in year 1994.
However, Sri Lanka is ranked 197th in the world, just 3 places ahead of Pakistan (200).
Next year’s tournament will give Sri Lanka an opportunity improve in their rankings.
