Lahore teams, representing the city of Lahore, have competed in Pakistan's first-class cricket tournaments since 1958–59. They also compete in the national 50-over and Twenty-20 tournaments as the Lahore Lions.

Teams[edit]

From 1953-54, the inaugural season of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, until 1957-58, the state of Punjab was represented by the Punjab cricket team (as well as by Punjab A and Punjab B in 1957-58). In the 1958-59 season the Punjab cities Lahore, Rawalpindi, Bahawalpur and Multan fielded teams. Owing to Lahore's population and cricketing strength, beginning with the 1961-62 season the Lahore Regional Cricket Association has usually fielded more than one team in first-class tournaments. (Karachi has done the same since the late 1950s.)

From 1958-59 to 2014-15 there have been 18 Lahore first-class teams. In order of appearance they have been:
