Lahore Pakistan (PR): Press Release issued on May 23rd, 2013 here by PFF, it was announced that PFF will organize National U-16 Football Championship, 2013 from 7th June, 2013 to 17th June, 2013 at Arifwala, District Pakpattan.
According to the press release issued here by PFF. Due to the sudden death of the President of DFA Muhammad Amjad Chuardary, District Pakpattan on 24th May, 2013. Now PFF has decided to change the venue and will organize National U-16 Football Championship, 2013 from 7th June, 2013 to 18th June, 2013 at Abbottabad.
Total 12 teams will compete in this Championship in which 8 teams are from Provincial/ Regional Teams (Punjab Football Association, KPK Football Association, Balochistan Football Association, Sindh Football Association, Islamabad Football Association, AJK Football Association, FATA Football Association and Gilget Baltistan Football Association) and 4 Youth Coaches Teams from (Karachi, Quetta, Lahore & Peshawar).
PFF took this decision because it will be difficult for DFA Pakpattan to organize the event in such poignant atmosphere. Muhammad Amjad Chuardary was one of the renowned personalities of District Pakpattan and good organizer. His sudden loss will make it difficult for DFA Pakpattan to organize this mega event.
