CPL Chief Executive Officer Damien O’Donohoe explained: “We are really excited about the forthcoming CPL season and look forward to welcoming even more supporters to our matches for the season ahead. We at CPL are acutely aware of our responsibilities to promote West Indies cricket and the tickets are competitively priced for single tickets and families across the Caribbean and Fort Lauderdale. As we now all know, the West Indies is the home of the ICC World T20 champions, and with a number of hugely talented emerging local players from the Under-19 squad and regionally, as well as our most talented roster to date of international talent, we’re shaping up for our most successful season yet.
“We’re working hard behind the scenes alongside our local partners to deliver an outstanding event and help showcase all this is good about cricket in the Caribbean. This year we will also be playing six matches in Fort Lauderdale which is a new and exciting departure for CPL, and I would urge all supporters to book their tickets early because we’re expecting huge numbers to attend again this year. Don’t miss out!”
