Qalandars spread the message of love and humanity & have strong connection & RECALL with  Lahore /Punjab/ Pakistan .[2]  Message Of Love 

Responsibility

Lahore Qalandars PSL Pakistan

I strongly feel that it is our responsibility to provide a strong engagement platform to our youth which gives them a chance to show and shine on the horizon of international cricket. Having said that,  Pakistan Super League  is a step in the right direction and comes at the right time. It is the platform we have been looking for that could represent and revive Pakistani cricket. I congratulate Pakistan Cricket Board for making this dream come true by giving Pakistan a Cricket League of its own. The power of PSL will lead our cities and provinces rise above individual interests and create an atmosphere of national harmony, peace and hope.[3]  Responsibility 

Details About QALCO

Lahore Qalandars Fan
With QALCO being the owner of Lahore Qalandars, it is for the first time for a Qatri Company to boost full ownership a of a Twenty20 team playing in a foreign tournament. There is so much in common here with the ‘Q’ standing for Qalandars, QALCO and Qatar. Our investment is in-line with the vision and message of our CEO H.E Sheikh Sultan Bin Jassim Al Thani who said “Qatar aims to be advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for its people”. Through our investment in PSL and franchise of Lahore Qalandars, we have taken this vision one step further to share our success and message of love beyond Qatar.
