The tournament was organized in memory of late Shahzada Shujaur Rehman. His son Shahzada Amanur Rehman was the chief guest on the occasion. Some 38 football teams participated in the tournament.

The final match was played between Balach and Golder Nojawan teams. Both teams played very aggressively and no team could score any goal until first halftime. At the end of the prescribed time, the referee decided to end the match on penalty. As a result, Balach team won the final trophy through a penalty.

Addressing on the occasion, the chief guest said Chitrali youth had the best talent in games but unfortunately there was no stadium in the district. As a result, a large number of youth could not exploit their potential. He announced that Shujaur Rehman memorial football tournament will be organized every year. He demanded of the government to open Lowari tunnel for vehicular traffic on a daily basis in the winter. He also demanded the construction of a public stadium in Chitral. Taj Muhammad, the president of the district football association, Hussain Ahmad, the general secretary, and other office-bearers thanked Shahzada Amanur Rehman for accepting to become the chief patron of the district football association.
