Repsol signs Guyana-focused Caribbean Premier League deal

Spanish energy company Repsol has been unveiled as a sponsor of this year’s edition of the Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 cricket tournament.

The agreement will focus on the seven CPL games that will be played in Guyana. Repsol will partner with the CPL for the Guyana Amazon Warriors’ five home matches and the two play-off fixtures in the country.

Repsol will benefit from brand exposure during matches played in the six other host countries. The company also supported last year’s competition.

CPL chief operating officer Pete Russell said: “As with last year, the principal focus of our partnership will be in Guyana, where the fan support for CPL is second to none. Repsol are an important part of the Guyanese economy and through our partnership we will ensure local fans get to see plenty of high quality cricket, whilst the investment in staging the games ensures the local economy gets a significant boost.”

This year’s CPL will run from August 8 to September 16. Each of the seven games in Guyana will be held at the Providence Stadium.
