Two of the biggest icons of football, Brazilian Ricardo Kaká and Portuguese Luís Figo will arrive in Karachi on January 10.

The duo will make special appearances in Karachi at The Pearl Continental followed by an appearance in Lahore at The Packages Mall.

The visit offers both cities a chance to get a glimpse of the stars and witness the gravity of the tour in the presence of industry, media, brands and most importantly Pakistan’s football fans.

Brazil’s 2002 World Cup winning squad member, Kaka in his message said, “I am delighted to visit Pakistan and play an instrumental role in promoting and helping football in the country. I have never been to Pakistan so I am really excited to come and play football whilst helping unearth hidden talent.”



Meanwhile, Portuguese legend Figo said, “It’s exciting to see another emerging country in Asia embrace football.  I’m certain in a population of 220 million there must be huge potential waiting to emerge into the international scene.”
