In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today declared open Premier League, an ambitious sporting event for the youth in Jammu and said J&K is witnessing a Revolution in the sports sector heading towards becoming a sporting Power House.
The LG said that Jammu & Kashmir is perhaps the first to organize 1250 matches across all the districts in four different disciplines, such as Football, Hockey, Volleyball and Kabaddi. It is no less than any festival, as around 8500 players are taking part in the games. This Premier League is an ambitious sporting event for the youth that will enhance the quality of competition and performance of the players ensuring their participation in National and International levels.
He further added that the government is taking a leap forward to overhaul the sports ecosystem of J&K, extending hand-holding to budding sportspersons by ensuring modern sports infrastructure coupled with world class training.
