KATHMANDU, Nepal- Nepal is to stage South Asia’s biggest football tournament in September. According to the organizers the tournament will see eight nations from the region competing for the title.

“This is the biggest (football) tournament we have organized in Nepal,”said Indra Man Tuladhar from the All Nepal Football Association.

The competition will kick off on September 1 in the 18,000-capacity Dasharath Rangashala stadium in Kathmandu, which is being specially renovated.

The winning team will take home $50,000 while the runners up will receive $25,000.

Cricket-mad South Asia countries are mostly international minnows, with Afghanistan the highest ranked nation at 140 and India even lower at 147, according to FIFA.

Last year’s South Asia Championship was organized in the Indian capital with the hosts emerging with the trophy.

Nepal held the first Championship in 1997.
