Swadhinata Krira Chakra emerged as champions in Bangladesh Championship League after playing out a goalless draw against Agrani Bank Ltd Sports Club in their last match at the Birshreshtha Shaheed Mostafa Kamal Stadium on Sunday.
Swadhinata KC, who were relegated from the semiprofessional football league in the last edition of the tournament but stayed back after applying to play again, surprised all by clinching promotion to Bangladesh Premier League for next season.
Swadhinata KC secured the title with a draw. It was their sixth draw in 22 matches as they managed 45 points -- one more than second-placed Fortis Football Club. NoFel SC and Kawran Bazar Pragati Sangha are on 41 points and have a match in hand.
