The 7th Annual All-Karachi Korangi Baloch Challenge Cup was held at the Sharafi Goth football ground in Korangi, Karachi, in April/May 2017. Considered a ‘mini World Cup’ because of the high quality of the facilities, generous prize money and the adherence to the principles of fair play, more than 90 talented and highly competitive teams took part in the competition. The final match was played between Mauripur Baloch West and National Fighters, with the former emerging victorious.
Getz Pharma employees, including senior management, attended the opening and closing matches of the tournament. Mr Khalid Mahmood, MD and CEO Getz Pharma, attended the Final Match to view the teams in play, and to present prizes and cash awards to the winning teams. The matches were also attended by members of the community, who were eager to watch the teams battle it out.
Since its inception, the tournament has been sponsored by Getz Pharma as a part of its CSR initiatives to support and uplift local communities and youth development through the promotion of education and healthy recreational activities. Getz Pharma believes that sports activities like these are not only physically and mentally healthy, but also contribute towards personality and skill development in the youth, which amidst more prominent ventures and projects, remains a segment with a lot of opportunity.
