LAHORE - Financially weak Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) and its players have donated their prize money to the Supreme Court initiated Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand dam fund.

A cheque of Rs1.2 million amount, which the football players won in SAFF Championship after a period of three years, handed over to Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar in a meeting attended by PFF vice president Naveed Haider and players.

The chief justice thanked the team for donating their winning prize to the dams fund.
