“Sindhis are scattered all around the country, but we seldom get a chance to meet and come on a common platform. A group of youngsters in Pimpri-Chinchwad has organised and envisioned this league as a place to come out in person and meet people, play together and celebrate oneness. We want to spread this tournament to all the Sindhis in the country and maybe one day around the world. We want all Sindhi communities to have similar events in their respective cities. ‘Sindhis are meant only for business’ is a common stereotype heard about the community…but such events may change the way people look at the community.”

The league theme song is – Jio Sindhi and the tag line is PLAY. CELEBRATE. REPEAT.
