Scotiabank extends backing of West Indies cricket

The West Indies Cricket Board has agreed a five-year extension to its sponsorship agreement with Scotiabank.

Under the terms of the deal, Scotiabank remains the official bank of West Indies cricket and the exclusive sponsor of the Kiddy Cricket schools scheme, in which investment will be almost doubled.

The five-year deal represents the longest contract Scotiabank has signed during its 14-year association with the WICB and will allow the governing body to expand both its cricket coach education programme and an initiative aimed at teaching foundation cricketing skills.
