First Dolpo Buddha Memorial Cup 2021
Dolpo cup firstly started around 2015. It was first started by some teachers and local staff who work in school. As they loved to play football they decided to play and match between villages boys with a bet to celebrate drinks. But later as the number of graduate students of Dolpo who studied in cities mainly, Kathmandu started to increase. They started to host the tournament between limited villages as enjoyment and gathering people.
