Sri Lanka Army Sports Club: professional team
The Sri Lanka Army Sports Club (ASC) is a Sri Lankan cricket franchise that has participated in the National Major League – Premier Trophy since the 2006/07 season.
The team is involved in all internal tournaments of the first-class format, but they have not managed to win a single trophy at the moment.
ASC’s home games take place at the 10,000th Army Ground in Panagoda.
Sri Lanka Army Sports Club: history
It can be noted that the contribution made by the Army Sports Club structure to the development of sports in Sri Lanka is invaluable. In this case, it is appropriate to say that the cricket club’s history begins with the army department, which was assigned to many disciplines (football, athletics, boxing, rugby), including cricket. Initially, all sports areas were part of the training of the military. Therefore, they were considered secondary.
Over time, the development of the Army Sports Club reached a new level, which allowed the sports divisions to participate in national championships on an ongoing basis.
This is how the Sri Lanka Army Sports Club cricket team has been playing in first-class format matches since the 2006/07 season. Unfortunately, the club still has not shown itself in any way, but the successful completion of the group stage of the championship allows it to be deservedly in the top division (the Super Eight) of the country.

The situation is similar in the List A format, where ASC has 35 wins in 68 matches, with 28 defeats and 5 unfinished fights.
