Shree Kumari and Satdobato Youth Club had won their respective matches of the B Division League on the opening day on Monday. Altogether 13 clubs are participating in the B Division League after Star Club and Koilapani Polestar pulled out of the tournament.
As Star and Koilapani have automatically been relegated, the rock bottom team will only be relegated from B Division. The winner of the league will be promoted to A Division.
