The Patron's Trophy is a Pakistani first-class cricket competition. It was first played in 1960–61 as the Ayub Trophy and remained so for ten years. In 1970–71 it became the BCCP Trophy and two years later it received the title Patron's Trophy. Beginning with the 2012–13 domestic season the tournament was renamed as the President's Trophy.
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.
