The World Soccer Stars 2019 Pakistan tour supposed to feature the likes of Ricardo Kaka, Luis Figo and Carles Puyol has been postponed due to financial reasons, with the dates set to be announced after the second week of June.
The decision comes after reports that ticket sales were slower than expected.
“The decision to postpone has not been taken lightly, given the enthusiasm of the Pakistan football fans when the players visited the country to launch the tour during the first few months of 2019,” the organisers said in a press release. “The excitement of the fans was genuine and was truly heartfelt by the players and has only served to motivate us to conduct the tour later in 2019.”
Those who have purchased the tickets need not worry, however, as the organisers have vowed to refund them immediately.
“For fans who have purchased tickets these will be refunded and you will be notified as a priority customer as soon as we announce the new dates,” they added.
