South Asian Carnival 2015

Pakistan Shaheens AFL team made history in the AFL International Cup 2014 by winning the inaugural Dosti cup in front of a massive crowd followed by winning the Unity Cup 2015. AFL has now decided to make Dosti Cup an annual event to promote friendship between India and Pakistan while also bringing together other South Asian countries through an AFL South Asian Footy carnival scheduled to take place at the end of August.

Shaheens will be representing Pakistan in this carnival and we are looking for players. This will be a great opportunity for the players to create dialogue, friendship, awareness of different cultures and healthy living. The players will also have the opportunity to learn from fellow players and qualified coaches.

Prior footy knowledge is desirable but not compulsory. Men and boys of all different shapes and sizes, with varying degrees of skill level from any cultural background are welcome to join. If you are interested in securing your place in the Pakistani team for the Cup please complete the player registration form by 30th July 2015
