The Bangabandhu Cup or Bangabandhu Gold Cup is an international association football tournament organised by the Bangladesh Football Federation as a tribute to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. This was the third edition of the Bangabandhu Cup, after a hiatus of 6 years. It was finally given the go ahead to be played in early 2015 with six nations participating.[1]

Malaysia U-23 won the third edition, after beating Bangladesh in the final. This was also the first time the host reached the final of this tournament.


In the group stage, six teams were divided into two groups of three teams, playing a single round-robin, with the teams finishing first and second in each group qualifying to the semi-finals.


Nine matches were played at two different venues in Dhaka and Sylhet. The Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka, and Sylhet District Stadium in Sylhet. All matches were played at the following two grounds:
