President’s Trophy Venue:

  1. National Bank Stadium
  2. UBL Sports Complex

This cricket tournament will feature seven departmental teams, totaling 22 matches in a round-robin format across seven rounds of league-stage encounters. The tournament will culminate in a five-day final from January 27 to 31, 2024, featuring the top two teams.

Marking the revival of departmental cricket in the domestic structure following the reimplementation of the PCB 2014 Constitution, this edition of the President’s Trophy comes after the 2018-19 season, where the State Bank of Pakistan claimed victory.

The reintroduction of departmental cricket not only offers players additional earning opportunities but also allows them to participate in supplementary tournaments following the completion of the region-based domestic tournament cycle.
