May 16, 2021

KARACHI: Strawberry Sports Management Chief Executive Haider Ali Daud has said that the best effort would be made to hold the first season of the Pro Football League before the end of the year if the corona situation was under control.

“We are determined to go for the inaugural season of the Pro Football League later this year provided Covid-19 situation became normal,” Haider said in a statement.

“I hope it will be a landmark event of the football clubs from all parts of Pakistan. It will help in club and game development,” Haider said.

“We have brought together 20 renowned football clubs from all parts of the country for the league which will be a regular annual feature,” he said. “The format of the league will be open and the participating clubs will compete on a round robin basis. After the conduct of a minimum of three seasons the league will be expanded into two divisions with mutually agreed upon promotion and relegation rules. In due course we will build capacities of the clubs,” Haider said.

“Owing to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic we believe that they will utilise this time to build the technical capabilities of the clubs through coaching, training and mentoring,” he added.
