The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) has carried out 30 times more activities in last eight years as compared to the corresponding eight years of the old PFF set up.
This was said by the Director Development & Competition PFF, Wing Cmdr ® Pervaiz Saeed Mir during a seminar on “Football activity at District/Province level for Balochistan at Municipal Corporation Hall, Liaquat Park here in Quetta.
The main purpose of this seminar was to help the provincial and and district football associations and clubs to carryout their own football activities like districts and provincial leagues, women leagues and youth activities. This was the fourth such seminar organized for the development of football in Balochistan and was attended by the presidents and general secretaries of all district associations of the province.
Mir further said that in order to further speed up the activities, the PFF has decided in its September 17 meeting that in the next 4 years all the provincial and district associations must also generate the required financial and resources to hold football activities. The PFF authorities also addressed the problems raised by the participants like the improvement in governance, promotion of youth and female teams, improved training for young players, upgrading football facilities and establishing training centers.
In the end, the participants came to the conclusion that provincial associations should take a step forward in football development and with the help of District Government, a well-coordinated plan should be made to solve all the problems, including the allocation of resources and the development of football venues.
