LAHORE: Although the government on Thursday issued NOC and allowed Pakistan women football team to travel to Singapore for international friendly visas were not yet received till filing of the report.

A few days ago Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) had expressed its inability to process the NOC case due to late submission of application for the purpose by NC. However, NC used different sources which helped it get NOC from both Interior Ministry and Foreign Office. Pakistan team is training in Karachi.
