Azadi Times: The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) has requested the South Asian Football Federation (SAF) to reschedule tomorrow’s match against India in the SAF Championship.
The PFF has cited visa delays and flight disruptions as the reason for the request. The Pakistan football team is still in Mauritius and is unable to reach Bangalore, India in time for the match.
Sources say that the Pakistan football team is finding it difficult to get 32 seats together on a single flight. The players could travel from Mauritius to Bangalore on two separate flights, but this would not allow them to arrive in time for the match.
The PFF has requested that the match be rescheduled to a later date. The SAF will take a decision in consultation with all teams and commercial partners.
The match between Pakistan and India is one of the most anticipated matches in the SAF Championship. The two countries have a long and storied rivalry in football, and the matches between them are always fiercely contested.
It is unclear if the match will be rescheduled, but the PFF is hopeful that the SAF will be able to accommodate their request.
