Me with some other my friends are planning to screen the worldcup group matches at the Hockey Ground, Khadda market, DHA. We will be covering the Group matches of Pakistan and the dates are schedules as
26th February, Saturday
8th March, Tuesday
19th March, Saturday
Dates for further Pakistan matches in the world cup have not been confirmed therefore they will be conveyed as soon as possible and would depend if Pakistan team advances into next round(s).
For the ground security we have talked to the Police and they will Inshallah agree to at-least give 10 armed policeman for the security.
The plans are not yet confirmed as we are discussing with many people on the arrangement. We might allow the restaurants around khadda market to sell there foods after maghrib and also we are in a talks with pepsi to give the drinks to the people coming.
Now there are few things that are important. The one is how we will broadcast the match ? The worldcall channel is around khadda market so we can probably use them but I don't know if its reliable enough.
Also as of now we have planned to sell the tickets for 250/= each with one free drinks during the match. To gather larger people we have planned to sell the tickets to the colleges and schools around the area.
The sole purpose of the broadcasting is to bring the people together to portray the spirit of the patriotism and have something to cheer about in a peaceful and healthy manner.
Please do share your thoughts on the plans and If you can help or give some ideas to achieve the target as also we do not want our investment to be drowned. We are in talks with sponsors but I think we will have to pay the fee to the ground management from our pockets, which is expensive and unless more then 500 people come we are going to cover our expenses.
Thank you. I will let others know how the things went. and If the program is finalized.
