As part of BOP’s commitment, the bank is sponsoring the BOP T20 National Deaf Cricket Championship to provide an opportunity for healthy athletic competition for our deaf cricketers. This initiative will also enable meaningful interactions among members of the deaf (and hard of hearing) community, provide a productive outlet, and result in numerous physical, social, and psychological benefits for all involved.

The opening ceremony of the BOP T20 National Deaf Championship was held at Punjab University Cricket Ground, Lahore, on 21st March 2022. The championship was formally inaugurated by Mr. Zafar Masud (President & CEO – The Bank of Punjab).
