“It is a great privilege to be part of a whole new sports legacy"
Mahira Khan and Ahad Raza Mir alongside Global Soccer Ventures (GSV), a sports management agency, are on a mission to revolutionise football in Pakistan.
Championing its mission to promote local talent, GSV has roped in four big stars to attract the sports management agency’s target audience.
Mahira Khan, Ahad Raza Mir, Mushk Kaleem and Bilal Ashraf are amongst the star-studded line-up that aims to promote the sport in Pakistan.
The move to enlist Mahira, Ahad, Mushk and Bilal comes after Michael Owen unveiled the national talent hunt drive.
GSV’s campaign to revolutionise the sport in Pakistan was announced in early January 2022 after a global virtual conference.
Karachi’s NED University is also set to collaborate with the Kamyab Jawan Sports Drive to encourage the youth of Pakistan to engage with football.
Mahira Khan, Ahad Raza Mir, Bilal Ashraf and Mushk Kaleem have come together to become Pakistan football’s official spokespeople for GSV and with a collective mission to reignite football in the country.
The stars revealed the news of their collaboration with GSV on Instagram.
Having made Pakistan proud with her acting career, Mahira Khan is now determined to make way for football.
Mahira Khan said: “It is a great privilege to be part of a whole new sports legacy with football.
“The football landscape is literally being constructed by GSV and it is a testament to their persistence and resilience to making it a success for Pakistan.
“Football needs attention as a matter of priority in men’s and women’s football in Pakistan being my area of greater interest.
“I am part of this vision and fully vested in GSV’s big idea.
“I look forward to contributing towards its success so I call on all budding football players to sign up now for the trials.”
Ahad Raza Mir also recognises the power of football.
Excited to facilitate the process, Ahad said: “I believe in the power of the youth, and being part of this initiative gives me a strong sense of pride.
“Now I wish to create a new legacy for the youth through football in Pakistan.”
“GSV has the vision and the strategy to take Pakistan’s football to new heights.
“I sincerely look forward to being part of creating history in Pakistan with football, so make sure you register for the trials and secure your future in Europe.”
The talent hunt programme that will pave the way for local football stars to showcase their talent in Europe is being organised in cities such as Karachi, Multan, Lahore, Islamabad and Faisalabad.
