The competition, which will be contested by 10 teams and played in five venues, will be conducted with an aim to build a formidable Under-19 team for the upcoming World Cup in 2013. The players, after an age verification programme, participated in a 50-over divisional competition. Players selected from the competition were then hardened through a skill camp, following which the divisional teams were formed.
The ten teams have been divided into two groups. Dhaka South, Khulna, Rangpur, Dhaka Metro and Chittagong have been placed in group A while Group B is made up of Dhaka North, Rajshahi, Sylhet, Barisal and BKSP.
