The Pakistan Volleyball Federation (PVF) 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, 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 league is scheduled to take place from May 11 to 17.

In addition to Pakistan, teams from Iran, Turkmenistan, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, and Kyrgyzstan will be competing. There is also anticipation for India to send its team to participate in the tournament, he mentioned.

Yaqoob expressed the federation’s efforts to seek financial support from the government to enhance volleyball development and elevate the game’s standards. He emphasized the goal of making the Pakistan team the best in Asia, despite resource limitations, by providing top-notch facilities to the national players.

Acknowledging Iran’s strong presence in the event, Yaqoob conveyed optimism about Pakistan’s success in the league, citing ongoing preparations of the national team in the training camp.

Assuring that all arrangements have been finalized, Yaqoob emphasized that the league would showcase Pakistan’s positive image to the world.

Following the departure of the Brazilian coach, PVF has enlisted the services of an Argentine coach for the national team. Despite financial constraints, efforts are underway to expose young talented players to international events.

Yaqoob outlined plans for three matches daily during the league and assured that Liaquat Gymnasium would be equipped to meet international standards for the event. He also expressed intentions to meet with the Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) to ensure the successful execution of the league.
