The Bangabandhu Gold Cup, also known as The Bangabandhu Gold Cup is an international football tournament organised by the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) as a tribute to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who is considered as the founding father of Bangladesh. It has been played sporadically since 1996, and was resurrected in 2015.[1]

Up to the 2016 edition, most of the participating countries in the tournament sent their youth national teams, their second teams or club sides. In the 2018 edition, all participating nations sent their first team except the Philippines.[2]

Palestine is the champion, after defeating Tajikistan in the 2018 tournament and defended his throphy against Burundi in 2020.
