The Zesh Rehman Foundation (ZRF), alongside partners at Active Communities Network, Crystal Palace FC, SSCN London and Kick it Out, are proud to announce a major event on the 15th November 2011 at Selhurst Park stadium – ‘An Audience With Zesh Rehman’.
Titled ‘My Football Journey’, Zesh will give a keynote speech on his career in football from a young man starting out in the game, through his time playing in the English Premier League and Football league, his current club in Thailand and his time captaining Pakistan on the international stage. Along the way Zesh will discuss his personal commitment to the development of Asian communities within the professional game, the role of footballers in society and his own Foundation.
Other speakers will include representatives of Crystal Palace FC, coaching staff from Premier League clubs and Kick it Out.
Strictly an invited guests only event, this will be an opportunity for young players, coaches and other interested parties to ask questions of both Zesh and the panel, and to engage with the ZRF.
As space is limited at this event, we are also inviting any interested parties to send questions to Zesh and the panel that we will try to ask on the day. If you are interested in sending questions please address them to info@
We are breaking questions into three areas: ‘Football and Community development’ for questions relating to the work of the ZRF or football in the community, ‘Zesh Rehman – My Career’ for questions of Zesh and his own career and ‘Asian Football Participation’ for questions directly related to building a career within the sport. Please state which category you wish to put your question under when submitting.
The final date for questions to be submitted will be 6th November 2011.
A summary report of the event will be published for all interested parties shortly after the event and posted onto the website.
