Kabul Stadium was once used by Taliban militants to execute their alleged "criminals". But now, it has been used as a stadium again.

Filling in with more than 10,000 football fans, who are cheering for their teams, the Kabul Stadium is now hardly associated with the place that was once used by Taliban militants to execute their alleged "criminals".
 
Football has turned the once gloomy stadium back to a place for uniting people.
 
The Afghan Premier League, also known as the Roshan Afghan Premier League kicked off Thursday in Kabul.
 
Eight teams, each representing one region in the country joined the game.

"Since our players are from across the country, from different tribes and provinces, I am sure that we can strengthen national unity through promoting football in Afghanistan."
