Pakistan new stadium for Karachi Image: GSV Global Soccer Ventures

The NED University of Engineering & Technology (NED) and Global Soccer Ventures (GSV) entered into a 10- year agreement to create the first Soccer City stadium in Pakistan.

The ‘GSV Global Soccer Ventures’ stated that the rumor mill of the much-anticipated Soccer City in Pakistan ends as year 2022 kicks off with an iconic landmark stadium deal being inked between the GSV and NED University. The state-of-the-art stadium is influenced and designed by German engineering to develop a series of football infrastructure projects in Pakistan by GSV from the ‘City of Lights’ in Karachi.

The Global Soccer Ventures (GSV) is a versatile sports management agency with a wealth of experience spanning over 40 years. GSV creates fresh and exciting football concepts ranging from sporting events to building dynamic football stadium infrastructures.

The NED University of Engineering and Technology is a public university located in the urban area of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is one of the oldest engineering universities in Pakistan. Founded as Prince of Wales Engineering College, it was renamed after Parsi landowner Nadirshaw Edulji Dinshaw.

Karachi City will see an iconic landmark with a brand new sports arena landscape in its skyline with an investment of $12 million USD. It will not only offer FIFA international playing conditions but will also offer an enduring football experience for fans and players with a raft of marketing and technology opportunities for brands never offered before in Pakistan’s sports.

The ‘GSV Global Soccer Ventures’ further stated that the Soccer City is based in the heartbeat of youth emulating the success of college football development model in the United States. GSV’s philosophy is to identify and develop players at the right age whilst continuing their education being identified as a priority for Pakistani parents and thereby offering alternative careers as a hotbed of talent in football on and off the pitch.

Remarked Dr. Sarosh Hashmat Lodhi, Vice-Chancellor, NED University of Engineering and Technology, “NED is world renowned for being at the cutting-edge of technology and science in its educational curriculum so why not football. It is a vision that only GSV can bring to life. I have seen the Science and evolution of football on offer and it will be a major transformation for football in Pakistan.”

Commented Chairman GSV Yasir Mahmood, “It is time Pakistan rediscovers itself in football infrastructure offering the much-needed professional and world-class facilities. This flagship Soccer City at NED will entice other Cities or institutes to come forward and become part of GSV’s football legacy offering the best in technology, science and football training all under one roof.”

Said former footballer Michael Owen, “There is nothing more important than having home and away fans in football stadiums. This investment will not only ignite inter-City football rivalry but will also become the future of football development all over Pakistan with sports Science at the forefront offering international opportunities.”

Stated the head honcho of GSV, Zabe Khan, “We are the foundation of a sports revolution in Pakistan with Soccer City being our flagship showstopper. The ideology here is that we don’t want to tell people of our dreams we want to show them, so we build it, fans come and get fanatical about our players in Pakistan’s very own theater of dreams to display their talent.”

A detailed press announcement and reveal of Pakistan’s first ever Soccer City is to be made by end of January 2022 by Michael Owen and a star-studded celebrity line-up with the very first images and 3D virtual video of the stadium being unveiled as a New Year’s gift to Pakistan.
