The LPL logo captures the rich culture and heritage of the nation, the free flowing spirit of the people and the fearless attitude of the Sri Lankan players when they are on the field.

The colors, applied in sweeping brush strokes, enhances the sense of volume and depicts the speed of the game and the flaming mane of the lion represents the unending passion and enthusiasm for the game which is loved by one and all in the nation. The objective of using these colors is to establish the tournament as a Sri Lankan brand which appeals equally both to the local and international fans.

At the same time, it also has a global appeal which will help our international audience to connect with LPL easily. It has actually captured the spirit of the nation, we couldn’t have asked for anything better.”

I am sure this logo will help the fans connect easily with the event and they will come forward to support it with the same passion like their national team.”
