The Massy Group has announced that it will be the title sponsor for the inaugural Women’s Caribbean Premier League (WCPL).
Marc Rostant, Senior Vice President, Massy Motors, who spoke on behalf of the Massy Group, said, “As one of the largest employers in the region, a significant percentage of our workforce is comprised of women. For some companies, such as Massy Stores, which operates from 59 locations across the English-speaking Caribbean, the workforce is on average 70% female. That means that creating opportunities for women to grow and develop is integral to our business and inherent to our purpose.”
He continued, “With sponsorship support which we hope will continue to grow for years to come, we believe that CPL will continue to develop this tournament to create opportunities for professional, Caribbean, female athletes.”
Jamie Stewart, CPL’s Commercial Director, said: “When we set out to create the Women’s CPL, it was important to find a partner that would help build the profile and stature of the game and players around the region, with the ultimate goal of making them household faces. In Massy, one of the region’s great companies, we feel the WCPL has the perfect partner.”
The three-team tournament will feature the Barbados Royals, Guyana Amazon Warriors, and the Trinbago Knight Riders, each playing each other in four Twenty20 matches at Warner Park.
The teams will be captained by Hayley Matthews (Barbados Royals), Stafanie Taylor (Guyana Amazon Warriors), and Deandra Dottin (Trinbago Knight Riders).
