Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision to nurture and develop football for the youth of Pakistan under the umbrella of Kamyab Jawan Sports Drive Program, managed by Special Assistant to Prime Minister, Usman Dar, can now be realized by an exciting partnership between GSV and the Irish Premier Division club, St Patrick’s Athletic FC.
St Patrick’s Athletic UEFA Pro licensed coaching staff will kick off the nationwide coaching and Kamyab Jawan Football talent hunt program in Pakistan under the watchful eye of Michael Owen. The road trip begins with a train-the-trainer master-class delivered by St Pat’s UEFA Pro license staff. The sessions are designed to up-skill and transfer football coaching knowledge to Pakistan’s coaching staff.
Initially, the team will explore talent in 10 cities of Pakistan including Islamabad, Muzaffarabad, Peshawar, Lahore, Multan, Sialkot, Faisalabad, Quetta, Sukkur, and Karachi. This will conclude with up to 20 players being given the opportunity of traveling to Dublin, Ireland to train and play with the Academy and potentially First Team of St Patrick’s Athletic.
