Performance in AFC competitions[edit]

Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club have qualified for continental competition on two occasions.

2012 AFC President's Cup[edit]

The first was in 2012 when they qualified for the third-tier AFC President's Cup. However, before the tournament started they withdrew,[9] citing security concern of playing in Pakistan.[10]

2016 AFC Cup[edit]

Four years later, having won the 2013–14 Bangladesh Football Premier League, they qualified for the 2016 AFC Cup.[11] In the qualifying round, they were drawn in Group A along with hosts Alga Bishkek from Kyrgyzstan and Benfica de Macau.[12] They beat Benfica de Macau 4–1[13] in their opening game and then drew with hosts Alga[14] to qualify for the group stage without having to go through the playoff round due to a lack of teams in the east region. They were drawn against Tampines Rovers from Singapore, Ceres from the Philippines and Selangor from Malaysia.[15]
