St. Kitts and Nevis confirmed as CPL host 2022
The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has confirmed that St. Kitts and Nevis will be hosting matches during the 2022 tournament, which will run from August 30 to September 30.
St. Kitts and Nevis will host seven matches between August 30 and September 4 with the home team and current champions, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, playing in four of those games.
In 2021, St. Kitts and Nevis hosted the entire tournament.
Pete Russell, Hero CPL’s CEO, said: “The 2021 Hero CPL was an enormous success, and we are hugely grateful to the government and people of St Kitts and Nevis who were fabulous hosts. Warner Park is a fantastic venue, and we are very excited to be back there as the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots get their championship defense underway in front of a home crowd.”
The Hon. Jonel Powell, Minister of Sport for St. Kitts and Nevis, said: “The hosting of the CPL in its entirety in 2021 in St Kitts and Nevis proved a success in every way for our people. Tremendous direct economic gains were made in our economy and to individuals at a difficult time due to the pandemic. Our people were able to receive some much-needed ‘COVID relief’ socially through the amazing matches, and our very own St Kitts and Nevis Patriots won its first CPL title in the most dramatic style.
“This is why we are very pleased to partner with CPL once again as a host venue for their 2022 edition, and to have the opportunity to see our Patriots defend their title right here at historic Warner Park.”
The 2022 season will take place in four countries- St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana- with the final set to talk place at Providence on September 30. (CPL)
