In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa sports sector has gradually started revival after launching of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Sustainable Sports Development (SSD) Programme worth 26 billion rupees.

The multifaceted development programme has been launched after coronavirus pandemic hit sports sector hard in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where sports stadiums, playgrounds, golf courses, tennis courts,  fitness centres, complexes and coaching academies from DI Khan to Chitral districts were closed for the last five months by restricting athletes to home.

As a result of the pandemic, KP Under-21 Games and talents hunt events were postponed and coaching programmes for athletes halted.
