[www.inewsguyana.com] -The Providence National Stadium will play host to 4 games in the 2014 edition of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (LCPL).
According to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Limacol CPL Pete Russel, the tournament will be run from July 10 to August 16 across the Caribbean and will assume the same format as last year’s edition.
He promised the same party atmosphere that the fans were accustomed to in 2013 and also thanked them for their support in the inaugural edition.
He said that a large number of persons turned out across Caribbean territories to witness the approximately one month tournament and is hoping for the same reception.
In 2013 the tournament was broadcast live throughout the Caribbean thanks via state channels and the hope remains that this year it will not change to cable like the upcoming NAGICO Super 50 tournament.
The assurance was given however that the tournament will encompass the same franchise bearing format and not the country format that has been the culture for time in eternity.
The tournament which was the first of its kind in the Caribbean featured overseas based participation and represented the first franchise based cricket event in Caribbean history.
It also featured a number of International stars in the cricketing world from outside the Caribbean and was carted off by the Jamaican Tallawahs after they defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago.
