No Pakistan Premier League in 2015-16 due to PFF crisis meant no Pakistani league winner will take part in AFC Cup 2017 qualifiers
It was a year that promised so much for Pakistan football, yet it ended with little to show for on the playing field.
Pakistan’s senior football team players have stressed that the conflict between the two factions of Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) should be resolved as soon as possible.
While many Pakistani footballers dream of playing for English clubs, Jon Ashworth, an English professional footballer, has broken the trend by opting to play for Pakistan Premier Football League (PPFL) champions K-Electric (KE)
Pakistan Premier Football League (PPFL) champions K-Electric (KE) will become the first club from the country to feature an English Premier League youth product when they head to Bangladesh for the Sheikh Kamal International Club Cup.
K-Electric have got permission from Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) for appearing in the Sheikh Kamal International Football tournament which will be held in Dhaka in October.
Reigning Pakistan Premier Football League (PPFL) champions K-Electric (KE) will have to do without their head coach Majid Shafiq after the latter decided to part ways with the team.
K-Electric won’t be playing just one home and away play-off to reach the group stage of the AFC Cup next year but they will need to win three games against different opponents to reach the tournament proper, Asia’s football governing body said.
