The name “Stani Army” came about as a need for an identity for loyal Pakistani cricket fans based in the United Kingdom. “Stani” was derived from the latter part of the word “Pakistani” and the name as a whole is a play on the name of England’s supporter’s group the Barmy Army.
Stani pronunciation – Sta (star), ni (nee)
Staniarmy.com was created in 2008 for Pakistan cricket fans and for all cricket fans around the world who feel the need for a stage on which they can air their views, have intelligent discussions and interact with other supporters about their favourite sport – cricket.
I hear you saying, “But there are lots of websites like this”. So what makes us different? Well, we know there are lots of great sites from which you can get scores and news from but on Stani Army we hope to create a unique and quality forum for Pakistani cricket fans to discuss the beautiful game. The site will include latest topics of discussion in cricket, issues affecting Pakistani cricket and a whole lot more. We will also take a keen interest in the Pakistani players plying their trade in the English County game.
Initially, staniarmy.com will start off as a blog where users can comment on various topics. Users will also be able post reviews on any cricketing books they have read, and send us their match day cricket photos from around the world which will posted on the site. We hope to implement lots of other features so make sure you keep coming back!
