LAHORE: The future of football in Pakistan is looking bleak once again with unprecedented events in Lahore on Saturday.
The headquarters of the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) was attacked by Ashfaq Shah and his group members, as per a statement released by the federation.
Ashfaq Shah is reportedly from the same group backed by the former PFF Chairman Makhdoom Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat.
As per the sources, the members of the group took over the PFF house, harassed the staff members there and took away the cheque books which halted all the activities of football in the country.
Following such events, the PFF late on Saturday night announced that the ongoing 2021 Women’s National Championship, which was being organised in Karachi, has been called off.
Pakistan football remained in turmoil over the years because of the political interference during the reign of different governments.
