Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif inaugurated state-of-the-art Younis Khan Sports Complex in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), a statement by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Tuesday.

During the inauguration, an exhibition match was played between FATA Eleven and Younis Khan Eleven in front of a packed crowd.

COAS expressed hope that enormous talent of FATA youth will be honed with upcoming educational and sports facilities in the region and with no dearth of talent, their aspirations to rise at the international level will be accomplished.

The plan for a sports complex in FATA was first pitched earlier this year, and with the help of 45 Engineers Division of the Pakistan Army, the project was completed in nine months.
