Caribbean Premier League holds on to Guardian Group deal

Financial services and insurance company Guardian Group has extended its partnership with the Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 cricket tournament.

The two parties have agreed a new three-year deal, which will cover the 2016, 2017 and 2018 editions of the tournament.

The company will support the CPL Volunteers Programme community initiative. Guardian Group, a Caribbean-based company, will also organise the Guardian Catch for Cash competition during each of this year’s 34 CPL games.

As part of the initiative, the first member of the crowd to catch a ball one-handed will win $1,000 (€883), the second catcher will win $2,000 and the third $3,000.

Jamie Stewart, commercial director of the CPL, said: “Guardian were one of the very first companies to support CPL when it was just an idea on a page and it is gratifying to have them continue with us for three more years.”

The 2016 CPL will run from June 29 to August 7 across seven territories: Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago, and, for the first time, Fort Lauderdale in the US.
