Guyana To Be Permanent Home Of CPL

Guyana Chronicle:- A NEW state-of-the-art facility will be constructed on Camp Street, Georgetown, to accommodate the locally-based CPL Franchise, Guyana Amazon Warriors, and a CPL OPCO Administrative Office.

The building is expected to be the permanent home of Guyana Amazon Warriors and will also accommodate the CPL Ticketing Office, a Guyana Amazon Warriors Merchandise Outlet, a CPL OPCO Administrative Office and a Hall of Fame.

The highlight is expected to be the ‘Hall of Fame’ showcasing a history of the CPL and Guyana Amazon Warriors from the inception of the CPL in 2013 to present and will be updated on a continuous basis.

Chief Operating Officer of the CPL, Pete Russell, was full in praise for the Guyana Amazon Warriors Franchise and for the support of the Guyanese public for CPL.

He commented, “This is a wonderful initiative that shows how far Amazon Warriors have come in the last six years. The team have become a big part of the sporting landscape in Guyana and have already created their own history with a number of memorable performances over the years. For CPL, we are delighted that fans will be able to re-live some of the best CPL highlights from previous years by visiting this new facility.”

At a press conference at the Marriott Hotel in Georgetown last Thursday, Russell told local journalists that Guyana Amazon Warriors will be unveiling a project within the next few days.

The project, he said, is a testimony of the success of CPL and Guyana Amazon Warriors over the period.

The venue will also be able to accommodate parking for approximately 50 vehicles for persons who will be conducting business at the CPL OPCO Office and visiting the Hall of Fame.

The seventh edition of the exciting Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will bowl off on September 4 in Trinidad and Tobago and will run until October 12, 2019.

Trinbago Knight Riders are the defending champions.
