From next season, the ‘Club Deportivo Bangladesh’ will compete in Argentine Football Association (AFA) recognized competitions, albeit the tier has yet to be determined.

The club named after Bangladesh debuted on December 16 in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires, two days before Argentina’s FIFA World Cup final against France.

On Tuesday, club officials attended a viewpoint exchange meeting with Argentina’s Bangladesh community, which included approximately 2000 immigrants.

During the meeting, the club also unveiled both home and away kits and presented a brief outline of their aim and vision to the Bangladeshi residents.

“Offical meeting of the leaders of Argentina’s Bangladesh Sports Club with fans of Bangladeshi residents in Argentina.” “A great night of presenting this new club and a great pact of commitment and friendship, working together for an international dream,” CDB stated on their official Facebook page.

For their emblem and shirts, the club used the colors of Bangladesh’s national flag – red and green.

The portraits of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahaman, the Father of the Nation, and Jose de San Martin, the Father of Argentina, have been placed on the right and left shoulders of the jerseys.

The front and back sides of the jerseys also include depictions of the Bangladesh map, Jatiyo Smriti Soudho (the National Martyrs’ Memorial), and the visage and autograph of Argentine football icon Diego Armando Maradona.
