Gujrat become the third team to sing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the first Super Kabbadi League, being played from May 16 here at Punjab Stadium.
Chaudhry Nasrullah Warraich – owner of Gujrat, signed the MoU with Strawberry Sports Management (SSM) for the 1st Super Kabaddi League (SKL) at a press conference, here on Tuesday.
“The sports in Pakistan are on the verge of decline due to lack of interest of government and corporate sector. There is a dire need to promote sports at the grass-roots level.
“We also need to promote regional sports and games like kabaddi, which can help the country get recognition across the globe,” Ch Nasrullah, who is also chairman of Al-Jalil Gardens, said.
Also present on the occasion were SSM CEO Haider Ali Daud, Majeed Warraich of Al-Jalil Gardens, PKF Vice President Ramzan Ghumman, Naeem Saqib, Nadeem Pehalwan and other kabaddi officials.
“The main reason for buying a kabaddi league team was promotion of cultural game of the country and secondly, as I belong to Gujrat, that’s why I bought this team to earn good name for my city. I just want to see kabaddi flourish widely and earn good name for the country globally,” he added.
