We may call it stereotyping, but it’s true. When people would hear someone to be a Pakistani or anything about Pakistan, they tend to conclude something about war and terrorism. But it very wrong to do that. All nations have its own bad side and good side. People in a certain country are not all terrible people. Though Pakistan experienced these allegations, it has a unique and ‘something-to-be-proud-of’ skill. This thing could make the most sought after and most famous game in the world to be possible. It is the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup.
Pakistan will providing the hand stitched soccer balls for the game. “A good player will play with this ball, it makes me feel good, it brightens our country’s reputation and that makes me feel proud,” says one young man as he continues stitching about six to eight balls a day. The balls are under the roof of Forward Sports.
“The ball stitched in Pakistan will definitely be of a higher quality,” said Khawaja Masood Akhtar, the owner of Forward Sports. For years now, Forward Sports has been binding the tradition of craftsmanship with the demands of research and development. Their goal here is to not just meet, but surpass FIFA standards.
