Scotiabank has become an official partner for the first season of the 2013 Limacol Caribbean Premier League (LCPL). The sponsorship is part of the Bank’s commitment to supporting cricket across the region.
“We are excited about becoming the official bank of the LCPL and contributing to the growth of a sport that celebrates Caribbean heritage,” said Heather Goldson, Scotiabank’s Marketing Director for the English Caribbean. “Scotiabank has had a presence in the Caribbean for more than 125 years and with Scotiabank Kiddy Cricket we have been committed to youth cricket for 14 years. This year, we are taking the game to the next level by sponsoring the LCPL T20 Tournament.”
The tournament begins on 30 July and ends on 24 August. Twenty-four matches will be played across six franchise countries—Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago—and will feature top Caribbean and international players.
“Scotiabank has long been synonymous with the development of cricket in the Caribbean,” said Jamie Stewart, Commercial Director and Consultant to the Limacol CPLT20. “The LCPL aims to spark a renewal and renaissance of cricket in the region, and in that sense Scotiabank is the obvious partner. We hope to work together to build out LCPL community initiatives and we thank Scotiabank for supporting this landmark venture.”
