The West Indies Cricket Board has announced Caribbean insurance group Nagico as the new title sponsor for its Regional Super50 limited-overs tournament under a three-year deal.
Eight teams – the six territorial sides from Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Leeward Islands, Trinidad & Tobago and Windward Islands along with Combined Campuses & Colleges and the touring Ireland national team – will contest the Clive Lloyd Trophy, which is named after the legendary former West Indies captain.
Trinidad & Tobago will host the 2014 edition of the WICB’s showpiece limited-overs tournament from January 30 to February 16, with matches set to be televised throughout the Caribbean on via sports broadcaster ESPN.
“Partnering with WICB was the next most logical step for us to take,” Paul Dijkhoffz, Nagico’s executive marketing manager, said. “As one of the fastest growing and the largest privately held insurance company in the Caribbean serving 19 territories regionally, Nagico was looking for a suitable partner who could provide us with a platform to elevate our brand presence and market our first-rate products to a vast cricket loving audience throughout the Caribbean.”
The 2014 tournament will be the first of three to be staged in Trinidad following an agreement between the country’s Ministry of Tourism and the WICB in September.
