Only in Pakistan: Local Kabaddi Match Gets Better Broadcast Quality Than FIFA World Cup Qualifier Game

Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) conducted a Kabaddi Match at Jinnah Stadium on Wednesday and its broadcast production was executed by their private sponsor Sarsabz at the 43rd National Kabaddi Championship 2024.

Social media users have praised the production quality of the Kabaddi match and deemed it better than the broadcast and production quality of PTV Sports which provided the transmission of Pakistan’s matches against Cambodia and Tajikistan during the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Football fans in Pakistan have asked the Sarsabz official brand to broadcast the football team’s next match against Jordan on March 21.

Last year, the Pakistan Football Federation accumulated around Rs. 10 million from gate revenue after the Tajikistan match where 22,000 spectators turned up but still the PFF is adamant to stick with PTV Sports as their main broadcast partner.

Sarsabz brand has also sponsored the Multan Sultans this season and they are working with them in unison during the PSL to promote the franchise in season 9.

Fans feel that it is disrespectful to the sport of football, which is currently the second most popular sport in Pakistan after cricket and the interest relating to the game has boomed since Pakistan’s first-ever win in a FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Cambodia last October.

The PSB has failed on many fronts in the past year alongside the Pakistan Football Federation, but the two bodies have been abysmal so far in providing the right kind of production quality of matches and floodlights in Jinnah stadium for the upcoming World Cup Qualifier game.

  • Kabbadi has far more fanbase than football in Pakistan. Rural areas of Punjab and sindh have a strong kabadi viewership.

  • No one is interested in football in general in Pakistan. That’s why we are at the bottom of the league. If there was an active fan following the participation of commercial entities would have got involved which automatically improved the broadcast quality.
    If your team is not winning matches, why spend more that whats needed on them.
