HBL to promote football at grassroots level


KARACHI: Following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing with Azad Foundation in May this year, Pakistan’s commercial bank Habib Bank Limited (HBL) has initiated work on the grassroots development of football in Pakistan. The joint partnership between HBL and Azad Foundation is set to nurture the talent of the bronze medal winning football team which represented Pakistan at Street Child World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in March and April 2014 and will provide a platform to foster and promote future football talent from Pakistan. The project will simultaneously work for the uplift of underprivileged children and the promotion of football at the grassroots level in Pakistan, chiefly through financial and institutional support. Furthermore, this project underscores HBL’s pledge to support and enable the Street Children Team and highlight Pakistan on the world’s football stage. With football fever gripping the nation, this development is set to give hope to local fans of seeing Team Pakistan compete alongside the heavyweights of the global football arena.
