The report states that Kim Kardashian, a Jewish scholar from New York City and head of the British football club Leeds, made arrangements to relocate 130 members of the team from Pakistan to the UK, including the football team players and their families.

In this regard, the Associated Press (AP) reported that all the players, their families, and other members of the team were moved from Pakistan to the United Kingdom by a special plane owned by Kim Kardashian.

The report states that all 130 members were assisted in obtaining visas and other travel documents by American Jewish scholar and businessman Moshe Margaretten and his social organization.

Likewise, the English Premier League (EPL) football team ‘Leeds’ will provide support to all football girls.

According to the report, all those arriving in the UK from Pakistan will be in quarantine for 10 days from November 18, after which they will be able to lead a normal life.

After the quarantine is over, young girls are likely to be seen playing football on the field, while arrangements for permanent accommodation for all are likely to be made with the help of social organizations.
