Leisure Leagues strengthened its diplomatic ties when a meeting took place between LLPK and the Greek Ambassador to the country last week.

H.E. Mr. Dimitris Hatzopoulos has been a long-term supporter of the Leisure Leagues project. He has already spoken warmly about company’s aims and achievements and was guest of honour at the recent Diplomatic Tournament – now he has pledged further assistance moving forward.

“We had a pleasant meeting with Mr. Hatzopoulos as he ensured his support to us for the upcoming International Socca Federation World Cup in Crete, Greece,” stated Ishaq Shah, COO of LLPK. Mr Shah commented further:  “Sports act as a bridge to bring people and cultures together, and we hope that the tournament being hosted in Greece will help us project a better image of Pakistan.”

The award winning Leisure Leagues Pakistan network is now in over 80 cities across the country, with over 12,000 players participating in leagues each week. The firms commitment to grass roots football – including the first women’s tournament anywhere in the country – was always the vision set forward by the Trunkwala family and World Group when they formulated their grand plans with the World’s largest provider of 6 a side football.

However, Mr. Shah confirmed that this was always part of the journey, and that adventure is nowhere complete, adding: “Leisure Leagues PK is committed to developing the small-sided football in Pakistan, and this year we have revised our selection criteria for the national team players set to feature in the SOCCA World Cup 2019, hoping to improve our performance bearing in mind the experience we have gained.”
