APL has partnered with world-renowned Pakistani singer Ali Azmat
To celebrate the launch of our historic tournament this fall, we are proud to announce a partnership APL has partnered with world-renowned Pakistani singer, Ali Azmat.
Ali Azmat will write, create, and produce the Super Anthem for our league! We are thrilled to have a superstar of this magnitude join us in a multi-year songwriting and endorsement contract.
Ali Azmat, along with his former band, Junoon, composed the anthem of the 1996 Cricket World Cup and now, the national song of the Pakistan national cricket team, Jazba-e-Junoon. This translated means “If you have the passion, then never lose heart. Whoever strives hard touches the heavens.” This song is still in the hearts of millions of cricket fans across the world, but Ali Azmat promises to make an even bigger hit for APL!
“I am thrilled to sign a multi-year exclusive deal with American Premiere League to compose the APL Anthem,” Azmat said. “This anthem will warm the hearts of millions of cricket-loving fans across the globe!”
“Growing up in Pakistan, and as a personal fan of Ali Azmat and Junoon, I’m very excited to announce he will be partnering with American Premiere League,” said Jay Mir, APL founder and CEO. “Azmat’s music is loved by many South Asians and throughout the cricket community. I know he will write something amazing that all music fans will enjoy, which will help usher cricket into the United States!
The legacy of Azmat and his band, Junoon, will be felt throughout our tournament, with Sherjan Ahmed, whose father was in Junoon, performing a cover set at the APL Opening Ceremony on September 13. Tickets are on sale now! You can purchase tickets here or by calling 914-340-1127.
