The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) have accepted the invitation to play in a women’s football tournament in Saudi Arabia in September, sources revealed on Monday.

The kingdom is going to organise a multi-national women’s tournament in September where a minimum of four and a maximum of six teams will participate.

The PFF was contacted by the Saudi Arabian Football Federation a few days ago.

Further details about the tournament will be revealed by the organizers once the teams are finalized.

Once the PFF gets the remaining information about the tournament, they will set up a women’s team camp by the end of this month.

The PFF is hopeful that this tournament in the Middle East will be crucial for the development of players as they will get more international experience.

It must be noted that the Pakistan women’s football team played a four-nation cup earlier this year in January in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Four teams Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Comoros and Mauritius participated in that tournament.

The home side won the title but Pakistan finished as runner-ups as they finished second with four points.

Pakistan women’s football team have played a total of seven matches in 2023 so far and have only managed to win twice scoring four goals and conceding ten.

The Green Shirts last played an international friendly against Singapore in July which they lost 1-0 after a great display.
