The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, and the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium will be the three venues to entertain the lookouts, however, if or not, the crowd will be allowed, is yet to be officialized.
Notably, 36 games will be played including the playoffs and a final. Six teams; Dhaka, Chattogram Challengers, Fortune Barishal, Sylhet Sunrisers, Khulna Tigers, and Cumilla Victorians will take part in the championship.
