About the Caribbean Premier League[edit]

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is the only privately owned company retaining all T20 league commercial rights.

The League obtained a 50 year exclusive license from the West Indies Cricket Board (“WICB”) while other leagues such as IPL and Big Bash in Australia are all owned by the governing bodies in their respective territories.

Since its inception in 2013, the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is a Franchise-based T20 format cricket tournament that combines two of the most compelling aspects of Caribbean Life – dramatic, exciting cricket and vibrant party atmosphere.

Over 149 million fans watched the 2016 season, combining broadcast and digital viewership, to make it one of the fastest growing Leagues in world cricket.

Jamaica Tallawahs, owned by Chalak Mitra Group, based in Houston, Texas are the current CPL Champions.

There are six (6) Franchise teams in the Caribbean Premier League:

Franchise Name                                            Owners

1.     Guyana Amazon Warriors                 Dr. Ranjisinghi ‘Bobby’ Ramroop

2.     Trinbago Knight Riders                     Mr. Shah Rukh Khan

3.     Barbados Tridents                            Mr. Vijay Mallya

4.     St. Lucia Stars                                  Mr. Jignesh Pandya

5.     St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots               Mr. Uday Nayak

6.     Jamaica Tallawahs                           Chalak Mitra Group

The Franchises are each responsible for managing their own operations and hosting their respective home matches every year.

Each Franchise can retain both International and Regional players from the previous year.   Since its establishment, the League has seen more and more international players participating in the tournament, while young regional players from their respective country teams are given the opportunity to showcase their talent and be exposed to playing alongside the international stars.

The tournament is structured in such a way that each team has at least four (4) matches at home, away games and two matches at a neutral venue.

After 3 years of successful tournaments in the Caribbean, in the year 2016, CPL was expanded to the US, with neutral matches held at the Broward County Regional Park in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The Caribbean Premier League’s total audience including live in-stadia and broadcast adds up to some 139 million viewers in 2016, an increase from 36.5 million for the initial tournament in 2013.

Since its establishment, the League has been supported through sponsorships from renowned Caribbean companies such as cell service provider Digicel, Guyana’s beverage giant Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), Republic Bank, SM Jaleel Group, Caribbean Airlines and Guardian Media Group. Hero Motorcorp out of India is currently the Title Sponsor of the CPL tournament.  The League’s initial Title sponsor was the very popular Limacol brand – a product of New GPC Inc.(www.newgpc.net), a Guyanese based organisation whose Executive Chairman is Dr. Ranjisinghi Ramroop  the Franchise Owner of  the Guyana Amazon Warriors.
