CPL coming to Warner Park in July

This comes as the tournament committee released the dates for matches in the 2015 edition of the tournament on Tuesday 31st March.

The fixtures show the opening day of matches in the Federation is on the 1st July, with a neutral matchup between defending champions the Barbados Tridents and the Darren Sammy led St. Lucia Zouks.

However, the home team does not swing into action until two days later, when they do battle with beaten 2014 finalist, the Guyana Amazon Warriors. That game would be followed by the Tridents against the Zouks later that evening.

A total of nine league games are slated for Warner Park, along with one charity game, which would be played on the 2nd July. Matches are slated for 1st, 2nd (Charity game), 3rd, 4th, 6th, 10th and 11th.   

The third edition of the CPL bowls off on Saturday 20th June in Bridgetown, Barbados, where it would be a rematch of the 2014 finals, When the Amazon Warriors square-off against the Tridents.

Last year, the rain-affected finals created some disagreement among fans because of the Duckworth-Lewis method used to determine the winner of the competition.

The tournament will make stop overs in five venues before it culminates at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

According to the CPL, a total of 33 matches would be played, with all six outfits playing 10 matches.

One notable change for this year’s edition is an increase in the prize money that is on offer, according to CPL. However, the CPL administrators did not disclose the amount.

According to then minister of sports in the Federal Cabinet, the Federation saw a massive return of over US$20million from hosting matches in the 2014 edition, while the tourism product was promoted across the world.
