Kakri Ground- A famous historical ground of Lyari

Kakri Ground Lyari is a very historic place not only for Baghdadi, Lyari, but is also one of the most famous grounds in the country. This ground has hosted a variety of national and international sports activities from football to boxing. More than 50 club football teams practice here daily.



A women’s football team from ‘Jafa Academy’ also comes here to play friendly matches and practice on a daily basis, while female under-16 international players from Lyari also come here to play football. Sports has been fundamental for Lyari’s transition from a conflict-ridden to a peaceful area. It is important to support sports here so people continue to be engaged in healthy activities and live in a peaceful and tolerant community.
