According to Usman Dar, Special Assistant on Youth Affairs, the Kamyab Jawan E-Sports programme would be launched with the interests of millions of Pakistani youth in mind. He said this will provide a platform to engage the youth, speaking at a news conference in Islamabad on Monday. He stated that the youth will be given opportunity to express their talent in all formats.
For the Pakistani youth, the programme would be launched in collaboration with the Lahore Qalanders (a Pakistani professional cricket team). According to Atif Rana, the Lahore Qalanders’ Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the move will provide possibilities for kids to showcase their talent in a variety of formats.
As part of digital Pakistan agenda, he initially announced that the programme will be launched in 25 major cities across the country, involving students from universities, colleges, and schools. He added that sports, like other fields, have seen enormous transformation in recent times, and that the government would register the top 10 e-gaming enterprises to provide e-sports facilities to the youth.
Interested candidates can register for free via the Kamyab Jawan online site once the e-sports programme is established. Currently, the service only allows men and women to register for traditional sports such as cricket, table tennis, football, badminton, squash, and others. In order to improve the country’s image, he stressed the significance of providing more possibilities to youngsters. He believes that e-sports will be featured in Asian Games and Olympics in the future.
