Trinidad & Tobago has been confirmed as one of the host locations for this season’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2022). There will be eight matches played in Trinidad during September 12 – 18, with home team Trinbago Knight Riders taking part in four of those games.
Half of the matches will be at 10 am, while there will also be the traditional evening games, where the Trinbago Knight Riders will play all their matches.
Trinidad & Tobago was the host for the CPL in 2020 where the matches were played behind closed doors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pete Russell, CPL’s CEO, said, “Trinidad & Tobago has been a huge part of the success of CPL and we are delighted to be back for 2022. The atmosphere at venues in Trinidad has always been fantastic and we know that the fans will be hugely excited to be back at the Biggest Party in Sport.”
The Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe, Minister of Sport and Community Development stated, “The Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is excited to partner with the Caribbean Premier League, and welcomes back the Biggest Party in Sport to the home of Carnival, as we host the 2022 edition of the CPL. This opportunity serves as an investment into positioning Trinidad & Tobago as a regional leader in sports tourism, especially in this redefined sphere of sport events in the post-pandemic era. Live spectators are an essential element of sport, so fans are welcomed to return to the stands in support of their teams and favourite players. In T&T we continue to champion safe practices while having fun as all COVID-19 protocols would be adhered to during the games.”
CPL 2022 is scheduled to be played from August 30, 2022 to September 30, 2022.
