The Tibetan National Sports Association (TNSA) successfully organized the last two Gyalyum Chemo Memorial Gold Cup (GCMGC) in 2003 and 2004, We are able to do so with the support and cooperation of Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) in organizing the regional qualifying round tournaments. However, this arrangement is now not possible from this year onwards.

Thus the TNSA hope to organize the tournament by way of having club-wise regional qualifying rounds. As such we urge young football lovers in the Tibetan community for the formation of your own like-minded football clubs. Requests for registration of your club with TNSA must reach the undersigned by April 15, 2005. On receipt of your requests TNSA will specify the terms and conditions will be given recognition status.

Based on the number of clubs given recognition status, the qualifying rounds for the GCM will be made. If the number of recognized clubs is many and if due to time constraints, the GCM may not be held this year. But a year-long fixtures may be planned to play regional Club-wise qualifying rounds. This will decided and announced later.
