Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) and All India Football Federation (AIFF) have decided to dedicate the match between the two sides on September 3 in UK to the memory of three innocent young men – Haroon Jehan, Shehzad Ali & Abdul Musavir, who were killed in Birmingham during the recent riots in UK.

In recognition of this objective and following the agreement from Tariq Jahan and other family members, all the profits generated from the match would be donated to set up a legacy programme dedicated to the memory of Haroon Jahan, Abdul Mussavir and Shahzad Ali.

The match will take place at Derby FC's Pride Park on Saturday 3rd September.

This will be the first time that India & Pakistan have played each other in football in the United Kingdom. The match will be attended by Tariq Jahan, Abdul Quddoos and other family members and friends. It will be launched with a one-minute silence in memory of the young men; both teams will also wear black armbands.
