We present a study of the transverse momentum parton distribution function of the pion, from pion-induced Drell-Yan (DY) lepton-pair production with existing data. We confront the impact of matching the high-transverse momentum collinear fixed order perturbative QCD pT with the low-pT TMD spectrum using using TMD factorization formalism on extracting the pion pdfs and TMDs. A Monte Carlo QCD global analysis within the Jefferson Lab Angular Momentum framework, is used to extract the pion TMD.
