Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) is going to organize the first Pakistan Inter-City League in 20114. The aim of the league is to take the game of football to the whole of the country. It will be the first time that football will be commercialized in the country and we’ll have a professional league. Hope the country’s corporate sector to come forward and support the initiative.
Pakistan Football League will feature six teams, one from Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta with another from Islamabad and Fata. The sixth team will be comprising players from the Northern Areas.
Once the tournament takes off and does successfully, bigger names will surely come. The first season will see two foreign players in each squad. Also, there will be two U-19 players and two U-16 players in each squad while Sardar Naveed is also looking into the possibility of inviting Pakistan’s foreign-based players for the event.
The top local-based players will be a part of the teams and also have the national team’s foreign-based players like Zesh Rehman and Yousuf Butt for the tournament.
For the first season, the games will be held in Lahore but Sardar Naveed hopes that they can take matches of the league to venues all over the country.
