Toofan Harirod in for a comeback season

13 Jul, 2015

After an exciting round of regional tournaments across eight regional zones of Afghanistan to select top 26 players for each eight teams of RAPL, it is time for inter-squad matches to  finalize the 21-man squad for each team. It is the final test for the 26 players who have already been selected for the eight RAPL teams.
Toofan Harirod was crowned the champions of the very first RAPL Championship in 2012. Two disastrous years followed their moment of glory and they never crossed the group stage of the competition. Hopes are high for the representative of the west region this year with 11 fresh faces on the team's roster and one of Toofan's best players, Rafi Barekzai, rejoining the team.
For players who will get to play for any of the eight teams, this could  be nothing short of a life-changing event. RAPL puts the spotlight on the players and that means more exposure and more opportunities for emerging football talents to excel in their personal and professional football lives.
This year, Afghanistan National Football team's coach and his assistant have already announced their commitment to evaluate players in the RAPL main event matches and invite the promising players to the national team. The 2015 RAPL tournament is set to kick off on August 27 and it will be the biggest football event in Afghanistan yet.
