The partnership is built on a shared vision of grassroots development. This vision aligns with both organizations’ goals. These goals involve providing new opportunities for youth, nurturing talent to a world-class level in Pakistan, and creating more opportunities for rising sports players and influencers.
Legacy Cup, Inter-School Football Tournament
The best thing to come out of this partnership is the LEGACY CUP. It was an inter-school football tournament that took place from the 24th-26th of February at Ayub Park, Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Ten teams from different schools actively participated in the cup, and BMI emerged victorious with an 8-4 win. Additionally, athletes will receive mentorship programs, workshops, and other initiatives across Pakistan, alongside cash prizes and grand trophies.
The event is the first step in empowering the youth with the necessary skills and knowledge to become successful football players; Train them through professional coaching and create opportunities for social influence. The idea is to create a sustainable and thriving sports ecosystem in Pakistan that will nurture world-class talent and influencers capable of competing in the global sports industry.
