History

Rovers Ramadan D-Goal Tournament is one of the oldest & first D-Goal tournament in Malir Cantt. Due to Ramadan football is played less in Pakistan but that doesn’t stop footballer lovers to play, they make arrangements for lights and enjoy Futsal or D-goal where ever they can find a place FC Rovers did that back in 2008 by hosting the first ever Futsal tournament in Malir Cantt Rovers had few problems back then as Futsal was a new format for Rovers main problem was with the rules as many players weren’t used to play in small pitches they kicked the ball like they were playing in full sized field so High Ball rule placed then sliding tackles were the issue as it was cemented pitch sliding wasn’t allowed last rule was no bending as goal size was very small so that wasn’t. These rules made the game more restricted too not clearing & easy to consed goals. In the beginning Rovers were short of funds for Prize Money as Mufti (Muslim Scholar) told the Rovers that it is wrong to give entry fee as Prize money so since then Rover’s senior members gave the Prize money for winning teams.
