The team, which clinched the prestigious title of runner-up in the tournament, received accolades from various dignitaries within the banking sector.

Arjun Raj Khaniya, the Chief Information Officer of NIC Asia Bank, disclosed that a ceremony was held on Monday to felicitate the 23 players and 8 officials who represented Nepal with distinction in the WAFF Championship. As part of this honor, each member of the team was awarded a sum of 25,000 Nepalese Rupees, symbolizing the bank's appreciation for their dedication and achievements on the international stage.
