Srinagar: To provide a sporting platform to the youth of Kashmir especially from the areas of Tral and Awantipora which have limited access to these amenities, the Army organized Shah-E-Hamdan Football Tournament at Tasraligund.
    The Tournament witnessed participation of 12 teams from the region and the final match was played between the teams - ‘Dar Brothers’ and ‘Tasraligund A’. The exciting finale which was cheered by a huge crowd was eventually won by the ‘Dar Brothers’ team who clinched the trophy with the score of 2-1.
  
During the closing ceremony of the Tournament, prizes were distributed to the winner and runner up teams as well as to the players who displayed excellent football skills during the tournament. Such initiatives by the Army not only promote the value of sports but also help in channelizing the youth towards positivity.
