The grand football initiative ‘Ronaldinho and Friends’ is just around the corner, with the first match taking place in Karachi on the 8th of July, followed by another showdown in Lahore on the 9th. There is profound anticipation lingering in Pakistani air, what with the game’s most celebrated mavens present as they collectively pave a path to spread football across the country. Leisure Leagues are hoping to ignite a ‘football revolution‘ and set the country ablaze with football fever.


FC Barcelona king Ronaldinho will be joined by Real Madrid’s Roberto Carlos, Chelsea’s Nicolas Anelka, Arsenal’s Robert Pires, Middlesborough’s George Boateng, Liverpool’s David James and Fulham’s Luis Boa Morte

The players have been avidly expressing their excitement to come to Pakistan, with all seven players even wishing everyone a very sweet Eid Mubarak too.

Eid Mubarak, Pakistan!

And they aren’t the only ones. Now Manchester United giant Ryan Giggs has been confirmed to be joining the players in Pakistan too

Ryan Giggs is a football prodigy. He spent 24 years playing for Manchester United, and the man has won a stellar 13 Premier League winner’s medals with a glittering record for 271 assists in Premier League history, by far the most any player has ever held. He has countless accolades that drip with four FA Cup winner’s medals, three League Cup winner’s medals and two UEFA Champions League winner’s medals among others. To say he’s exemplary is an understatement.

#LeisureLeaguesPK & World Group are proud to present Ryan Giggs, 'The Boy Genius', as our FINAL player set to join…
