Nepal is a beautiful landlocked country in South Asia bordering China and India.

Nepal uses the Nepal Standard Time (NPT) which is an approximation of Kathmandu meantime which is 5 hours 41 minutes 16 seconds ahead of UTC. One of the Peculiar things about Nepal Standard Time is that it is one of the three-time zones in the world which are offset by 45 minutes as the rest of the time zones are offset by either complete hours or 30 Minutes from the UTC.

The most significant event in the field of football which takes place every four years attracts a number of fans across the world and Nepal are no exception to it.

The matches will kick off as per the Arabia Standard Time (AST) which is three hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) while Nepal Standard Time (NPT) is 5 hours and 45 minutes ahead of UTC, hence, there is a time difference of two hours and 45 minutes between Nepalese Time and match kick-off time, thus, we converted the timing of all the matches in UTC+5:45 from UTC+3 as per the official match schedule.
