Performance in AFC competitions

Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club have qualified for continental competition on two occasions.

2012 AFC President's Cup

The first was in 2012 when they qualified for the third-tier AFC President's Cup. However, before the tournament started they withdrew,[7] citing security concern of playing in Pakistan.[8]

2016 AFC Cup

Four years later, having won the 2013–14 Bangladesh Football Premier League, they qualified for the 2016 AFC Cup.[9] In the qualifying round, they were drawn in Group A along with hosts Alga Bishkek from Kyrgyzstan and Benfica de Macau.[10] They beat Benfica de Macau 4-1[11] in their opening game and then drew with hosts Alga[12] to qualify for the group stage without having to go through the playoff round due to a lack of teams in the east region. They were drawn against Tampines Rovers from Singapore, Ceres from the Philippines and Selangor from Malaysia.[13]
