Certainly Kalid Jamil, FCBU's new coach for this season expected a tough opponent in season's first competetitive game. However, their opponent Jawahar Union, turned up late, and struggled to assemble players so that it can constitute an official game.
While BUFC begin the league with a positive note beating strong Bangalore Eagles, Roots FC sprung a surprise by beating MEG.
