Central Asian Volleyball League is set to take place in Islamabad next month

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Volleyball Federation is gearing up to host the Central Asian Volleyball League in Islamabad next month, with six teams already confirming their participation in the event.

Chaudhry Mohammad Yaqoob, the Chairman of PVF, announced during his visit to the national volleyball team’s training camp at Liaquat Gymnasium in the Pakistan Sports Complex that the federation has scheduled the Central Asian Volleyball League to take place in Islamabad from May 11 to 17.

In addition to Pakistan, teams from Iran, Turkmenistan, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, and Kyrgyzstan are set to participate in the event. There are also hopes that India will send its team to Pakistan, he mentioned.

He expressed that they have approached the government for financial backing to enhance volleyball development and elevate the game’s standards. Yaqoob emphasized their ambition to see the Pakistan team excel in Asia.

Despite facing resource constraints, he highlighted that PVF is committed to providing all feasible amenities to the national players.

The PVF Chairman mentioned that the national team’s training camp is currently in progress here to prepare for the League. While acknowledging Iran’s strength in the event, he expressed optimism about Pakistan’s success in the mega event.

He further stated that all preparations have been completed to ensure the successful hosting of the League. This event is expected to showcase Pakistan’s positive image to the world.

Following the departure of the Brazilian coach, we have now enlisted the services of an Argentine coach for the national team. Despite our limited resources, we are dedicated to offering as many international events as possible to our young, talented players, he stated.

Yaqoob elaborated that there will be three matches per day. We are currently upgrading the Liaquat Gymnasium to meet international standards for the league. Additionally, I intend to meet with the Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) to ensure the event is conducted in a fitting manner, he added.
