The 10 teams displayed high energy and sportsmanship in order to succeed in the subsequent phase of the League and clinch the majestic trophy of Kashmir Premier League (KPL) 2021.
"The motive of this KPL is to engage youths in sports activities and stay away from other bad activities like drugs. They also aim to make youths physically fit which makes for sharp minds which helps these youths for better future," said Khursheed Shaheen, in-charge of District youth and sports services told ANI.
"This League also gives exposure to these youths as they meet with new teams and get more experience. The village-level youth gets more exposure as they have talent but do not have facilities and sponsors at the village level so they get more experience by playing matches with other teams," said a player.
