Javed Afridi Working on Starting a PSL-Like Football League

Javed Afridi, the owner of PSL team Peshawar Zalmi and the CEO of Haier Pakistan wants to start a PSL-like franchise football league in Pakistan. Javed Afridi, in a tweet said that the talks with various bodies are ongoing for a franchise football league and asked other organisations to come forward to add value to the concept.

Some football experts in Pakistan were not happy with the news as they feel that franchise-based football leagues have not been a successful model, they instead want the league to be held in a promotion/relegation format.

Earlier in the week, Pakistan Football Federation appointed Daniel Limones of Spain as its technical director. Limones, a UEFA Pro License coach, was associated with Spanish La Liga giants Club Atletico de Madrid and had been working with the club’s academy in Lahore as head coach. Announcing Daniel Limones’ appointment, Humza Khan, the chairman of the PFF committee, said that they were “looking to set a road map for the revival of football in Pakistan”.

Things do look bright for the future of football in Pakistan as famous personalities such as Javed Afridi are showing a keen interest in the sport. Only time will tell how fruitful these steps would be.
