Peshawar Zalmi owner, Javed Afridi believes that the partnership can usher a new era of MMA in Pakistan and that they will do their best to make SFN a global brand.
We have joined hands with SFN to promote MMA in Pakistan. With PSL-5 happening in Pakistan, it is incumbent on us to promote other sports as well. Pakistan has a lot of talented MMA fighters and they require the proper platform to showcase it. Peshawar Zalmi will help in making SFN a global sporting entity across the region.
The event marks the first of its kind MMA tournament in Pakistan and SFN CEO, Umer Toor says that “it is a grand opportunity for all the athletes to prove their talent in MMA cage”.
SFN Chairman, Saad Khan lauded the efforts of Peshawar Zalmi for sports development in the country:
Through this collaboration, we have combined the unique strengths of MMA expertise of SFN with the biggest sports entity of Pakistan, Peshawar Zalmi, and appreciate their efforts in developing other sports as well.
