Karachi, May 11, 2018 (PPI-OT): The newly-formed Pakistan Petroleum Limited Football Club (PPL-FC) clinched bronze medal at the award ceremony of Pakistan Football Federation’s National Challenge Cup (PFF NCC) 2018 on May 10 at Karachi Port Trust Football Ground. Senior Vice President PFF and Chief, Sindh Football Association Syed Khadim Ali Shah was Chief Guest of the event along with MD and CEO PPL Syed Wamiq Bokhari as Guest of Honour. PPL-FC Captain Nazir Khan was declared the highest goal scorer of the tournament.
Earlier, PPL-FC overpowered Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority with a 5-1 score in the play-off for the third position on May 9. Nazir Khan’s hat-trick with Abdullah and Mehrullah scoring a goal each ensured a huge win for PPL-FC.
“In the run-up to the semi-finals of the tournament, PPL-FC did not lose a single match nor concede any goals which was a remarkable achievement for the debutants,” highlighted Bokhari. The team lost its semi-final match to Wapda.
Ensuring a place on the victory stand in its maiden tournament from among the 24 entrant teams is a huge feat for a newly formed 25-member PPL-FC team, whose players come from remote and disadvantaged areas and were selected from the three consecutive PPL Balochistan Football Cups based on skill and performance.
