There will be no Nepalese clubs taking part in AFC Cup this season.
ANFA said that the applications of all 14 A Division clubs have been rejected.
The FA said the result was announced after meeting between All Nepal Football Association's Club Licensing Committee and First Instant Body (FIB) on October 25, 2019.
Manang Marshyandi Club, Three Star Club, Nepal Police Club, Jawalakhel Youth Club, Sankata Club, Friends Club, Saraswoti Club, Himalayan Sherpa Club, Brigade Boys Club, Armed Police Force, Tribhuwan Army Club, Machhindra Club, New Road Team and Chyasal Youth Club- had applied for the AFC Licenses for the season 2019/20.
The FA added that since none of the clubs lodged an appeal to the commitee the decision has been sent to AFC after the conclusion of the Core Process Timeline.
AFC recently slapped a huge fine to ANFA for granting club license to clubs incorrectly. Nepalese clubs struggle to meet minimum criteria set by AFC.
The ANFA is preparing to implement Club Licensing in National League for next year with the minimum criteria included by the AFC in the Club Licensing Administration (CLAS) System.
