The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL T20) is delighted to announce Republic Bank as its Official Banking Partner for the 2016 campaign.
Nigel Baptiste, President of Republic Financial Holdings Limited and Managing Director of Republic Bank Limited, said: “Republic Bank is honoured, as the Caribbean’s largest indigenous banking Group, to partner with the Caribbean Premier League in bringing the Region’s largest sport entertainment event to Cricket fans everywhere. This partnership has given us the opportunity to not only augment our focus on building successful societies, both locally and regionally, but to also help provide the economic and environmental benefits of tourism – a sector that is critical to the development of many of our Caribbean countries.
“Our hope is that, through this League, there will be deeper integration and collaboration between the leading minds and organisations across the Region, resulting in both the tangible and intangible benefits that can come from being parts of a larger whole. What better way to start that unification, than through the time-honoured and globally treasured sport of Cricket.” he added
Damien O’Donohoe, Chief Executive Officer of the CPL, added: “It is my absolute pleasure to welcome Republic Bank as Official Bank of the Hero CPL for 2016. We deeply appreciate their heartfelt words regarding CPL’s significance and role in the region, and it is great to see another ‘home-grown’ powerhouse as part of the CPL family.
“The message of CPL being a unifying force and in many ways an expression of the Caricom ideal is one that we also feel deeply about and we forward to working with the Bank to bring an even and more enjoyable sporting and cultural experience to the people of the English-speaking Caribbean, and to showing the rest of the world what this beautiful region has to offer.”
