KARACHI: Football icons Ricardo Kaka and Luis Figo are arriving in Pakistan today to formally launch World Soccer Stars event.
The duo will make special appearances at Karachi’s Pearl Continental Hotel and Lahore’s Packages Mall.
Brazilian star Kaka and Portuguese legend Figo will promote World Soccer Stars during their visit to Pakistan – an event aimed at uplifting football in the country and offering a gateway to football talent at grass-root level.
World Soccer Stars has promised a football spectacle starting from April 26 to 29 with two matches in Karachi and Lahore.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Kaka said he was looking forward to spending a few days in Pakistan.
Figo shared similar feelings in an earlier message on social media. “It is exciting to see another emerging country in Asia embrace football. I’m certain in a population of 220 million there must be huge potential waiting to emerge into the international scene,” the former Portuguese footballer tweeted.
The event is being organised by TouchSky Group who hopes that the visit of the legendary duo will help portray Pakistan’s softer image to the rest of the world.
