The Friendship Cup: Golf Unites The Communities Of Pakistan & India


The sporting rivalry between India and Pakistan is not limited to the cricket pitch, where it has captured the interest of millions.

The subcontinent’s sporting titans have also competed in hockey, association football, badminton, squash, snooker, chess, and golf.

The annual golf match between Team India and Team Pakistan drew everyone’s attention earlier this week as the teams faced off at the elite Emirates Golf Club for the Friendship Cup.

Team Pakistan took the honors and bragging rights when they won the 4th edition of the aptly named Friendship Cup, which brought together communities and friends from neighboring countries.

The event was contested over two days and 36 holes, with the first day taking place on the Faldo Course and the second day taking place on the Majlis Course.

Each team had 32 players and played fourball matches on both days.

The Friendship Cup was sponsored by DP World and IL20, both of whom have guaranteed their support for next year’s event.
