As part of the ongoing Army-to-Army Sports Exchange Programme between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, a 17-Member Pakistan Army Rugby Team, arrived Colombo on 24th July 2017.
The Pakistan Army Rugby team, led by Brigadier Ghulam Jilani, will play a bilateral series with SLA Rugby Team from 25th July to 1st August 2017.

Both sides have resolved to intensify sports and cultural cooperation for enhancing people to people contacts.
