Belagavi is a city in the Indian state of Karnataka. The Govt of Karnataka has proposed it in making the 2nd capital of Karnataka. Panthers are the creatures of ancient legend that resembles a big cat with multi-colored hide.

Belagavi Panthers is a franchise cricket team, representing in KPL, being organized by KSCA. The new owner of this franchise is MR. ALI ASFAK THARA..

The panthers are a combination of young guns playing with experienced season campaigners. Their approach to cricket has been reasonably simple: it was about giving everything to the team, it was about playing with dignity, and it was about upholding the spirit of the game. They have failed at times, but they have never stopped trying. It is why they come back with pumped up courage gain a commanding win. The joy of bonding together and strive to achieve a goal is what made this team irresistible.

The Team has been build with the motto "Hard work beats talent when Talent doesn't work hard". The team has innovated new ideas, with the proper mantra of success & evaluation of all players has developed their growth by finding the proper solutions to all the problems & making progress towards success.

They’re inquisitive and fun-loving people, smiling defiantly in the face of hardship and raucously celebrating times of prosperity. They truly believe that the game itself will continue to provide unimagined pleasures, that true drama will once more come center stage, booting into the wings the tragedy and farce the team has witnessed over the past games in particular.

The team has been through the crescendo of enthusiasm and weighted words to spur their troops onto the field with fists clenched and maybe even a tear in the eye. Never a cacophony of laughter. Their drive towards victory is unexplainable. They're saying, "If you want to win this trophy, we’ll have to fight it out." They will always be like marching ants carrying one grain of sugar at a time – falling again and again but never giving up until they reach the top. A team is not about joining hands, it is about joining hands no matter what.
