Pakistan, under the administration of Strawberry Sports Management, announced its first-eve, Freestyle Wrestling League.
Pakistan Wrestling Federation (PWF) is the exclusive technical collaborator of the league.
Wrestling is evidently the world’s oldest and a highly popular sport among the masses. The sport has featured in the Olympic Games right from the inaugural session in 1896.
Pakistan, once considered a powerhouse of wrestling, has managed to produce some world-class players over the years.
The inaugural season of the league will be played next year, subject to Covid-19.
The franchise league will feature the best players in different weight categories. The size of the league will expand every year.
Speaking at the occasion, Strawberry Sports Management Founder Haier Ali Daud said:
This is an immensely proud moment for the sports of Pakistan. Together with PWF, we are reviving an age-old and most popular sport in the country. Wrestling has its roots in the culture of Pakistan. Through the league’s quality, players and games will be highlighted.
As reported, PWF Secretary Arshad Sattar also added:
We are excited to announce Pakistan’s first-ever wrestling league. The game of wrestling will receive much-needed attention and commercial support through the League. We are confident that together with Strawberry Sports Management we will write a new chapter in the history of Wrestling.
It’s to mention here that other than the new Freestyle Wrestling League, Strawberry Sports Management also owns Super Kabaddi League.
