One of the biggest teams in the Pakistan Super League, ARY’s Karachi Kings has announced its partnership with PTV Sports as its media partner.
ARY is the owner of the Karachi Kings after forking out an astronomical amount for a ten-year period. PTV Sports will now support the broadcaster by pushing out the Karachi Kings on its platform.
Talking about the collaboration, Dr. Nauman Niaz, Director Sports and Syndication PTV & Head of PTV Sports said, “We are entering into this collaboration not for commercial purposes but to enhance the soft image of Pakistan. We share the passion for cricket with the Karachi Kings management and would be more than willing to play our part in bringing the international cricket back to the grounds of Pakistan. We want to take this collaboration as an indirect opportunity to reinvest in building the cricket culture in Pakistan and attract more youth towards cricket. We at PTV Sports are excited to have joined hands with Karachi Kings in supporting this great game of cricket.”
Chief Executive Officer of Karachi Kings, Mr. Tariq Wasi said, “As you know, time and again we have reiterated our commitment to cricket as not only a sport but one of our efforts to build a better image of Pakistan. With common goals we believe that partnering with PTV Sports as our Official Sports Channel, which is a state owned channel, reinforces our commitment to be hand in hand with the government of Pakistan to promote cricket and the positive image of Pakistan.”
