The Pakistan Super League (PSL) first edition's inaugural season’s runner-up, Quetta Gladiators, have signed Pakistan’s leading private insurer Jubilee Life Insurance as their title sponsor for this season which will kick off on February 9th in the UAE until March 7th.
With PSL-2 expected to be bigger and better, the welcome partnership with Jubilee Insurance, is well aligned with the vision of the franchise and provides a secure future footing.
Quetta Gladiators, Managing Director, Mr. Nadeem Omar said he was hopeful that the association with Jubilee Insurance will go a long way in years to come. "It's always good to have credible brands because it ultimately helps the team's value and what better brand than Jubilee Insurance," said Nadeem.
Mr. Javed Ahmed, Managing Director & CEO, Jubilee Life, believes that, “As the leading private life insurer in Pakistan, Jubilee Life has a firm commitment to promoting partnerships for the betterment of the nation and in fostering cricket as our country’s passion.”
Unable to clinch the final victory, the Gladiators team, captained by Sarfaraz Ahmad and coached by Moin Khan, lost the inaugural PSL final to Islamabad United – missed out narrowly on a near perfect tournament.
For this season, the team has successfully drafted a handful of exciting names including Australian run-machine Brad Hodge, Sri Lankan all-rounder Thishara Perera, South Africa’s Rilee Rossouw, England's speedster Tymal Mills and New Zealander Nathan McCullum now joining the ranks of top players like Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright, Ahmad Shahzad, Sarfaraz, Umar Gul, Mohammad Nawaz, Asad Shafiq, Zulfiqar Babar and Anwar Ali.
Meanwhile, Quetta Gladiators Director, Sohail Omar, is hopeful that the association with Jubilee Insurance will bring in positive energy to the side. Commenting on this sponsorship initiative, he stated, "If your future is secure, your performance and confidence automatically improves; and this is our philosophy as well. Giving security to players is paramount and with Jubilee Insurance coming on board, it puts winning the title on firmer ground.”
