Since Punjab have a huge foreign diaspora so they arrange certain events in other countries as well.[6] Recently rugby is gaining traction in Punjab and Pakistan's first under-16 rugby team has been selected from Faisalabad Punjab to play in the World Rugby under-16 tournament.[7]

[5] Also local boards make sure to have international collaborations when necessary to improve standards in certain sports.[4] Punjab youth festival is an annual event in Pakistani Punjab that is very famous in terms of audience participation.[3]
