League football is finally back in Nepal. The much awaited Matyr’s Memorial A Division League is starting from today after about five-years long wait.
In the opening match, New Road Team (NRT) will play against Tribhuwan Army Club at ANFA Complex Ground at Satdobato. The match will start at 3 pm Nepali Time.

Looking at the history, NRT is much successful than the Army team in the league. NRT had won the league four times whereas Army is yet to win the league. However, this time with the likes of Bharat Khawas and Nawayug Shrestha in the team, Army looks much stronger this time.
NRT has a great history, but they went through tough time in 2069 BS when they had to step down from all football activities due to economic problems. As they didn’t play the A Division league then, they were demoted to B Division League. However, they were again promoted to A Division League after finishing second in the B Division league in 2073 BS.
