In September 2015, the PCB officially announced the launch of the Pakistan Super League, with its inaugural season to be  played in 2016. Former captains Wasim Akram and Rameez Raja have signed formal contracts to be brand ambassadors of the  PSL for the next three years. In its inaugural season, the PSL will only have five teams, with plans for an expansion to  a ten league team over the next 5 seasons. The league will use the draft system for player recruitment, similar to that  of the National Football League in the United States, as opposed to the “auction” used in other T20 leagues.

The  anthem, Ab Khel Ke Dikha, was sung by Ali Zafar and the PSL logo was revealed by 3Di. The ceremony was attended by  current and retired cricketers, as well as showbiz celebrities.
