The trophy is contested between different departments as opposed to geographical regions. In the past however two Karachi teams have competed. Games are awarded first class status, although between 1979 and 1983 this privilege was not granted. The 1999–2000 season was also not first class because in a one-off it acted as a qualifying competition for the Quaid-i-Azam Trophy. It is currently sponsored by ABN-AMRO.
