The role of banks, departments and institutions in the promotion, economic welfare and development of Pakistan’s sportspeople is unforgettable. If there is no departmental patronage in Pakistan, there will be no sports.
Whatever Pakistan has got in the world of sports is because of the services of banks and other departments which provide huge amount of funds, provide jobs to players and establish their own sports complexes, gymnasia and academies.
They produce hundreds of great sportspeople in various disciplines who conquer the world and hoist Pakistan’s green flag around the world — in cricket, hockey, squash, snooker.
The EVP and head of CSR Mohsin Furqan said that to inform the younger generation of sports world, NBP has planned to establish a picture gallery at NBP stadium of those players who represented the bank in domestic sports and also establish stands, naming them after Iqbal Qasim, Wasim Hasan Raja, Nasim-ul Ghani, Wallis Mathias and Wazir Muhammad.
