In total four matches, comprising of back-to-back doubleheaders between Guyana Amazon Warriors against Chris Gayle’s St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots, and reigning champions the Jamaica Tallawahs against Barbados Tridents, will take place over an action-packed weekend in Florida.

Welcoming the ticket announcement, Hero CPL COO Pete Russell said: “We are pleased to release the first tranche of tickets for our return to Lauderhill, Florida this week and believe that the American, West Indian and international audience are in for a treat of top quality cricket and a fan-friendly taste of Caribbean culture.
“Last year’s inaugural staging of matches in Central Broward Stadium was a huge success with over 30,000 fans in attendance and we are committed to creating a competitively-priced event for a growing and passionate cricket audience in the USA and the Caribbean.
“We are excited about bringing the biggest party in sport to mainland USA again this year, and fans can expect a carnival atmosphere that is typical of the Hero CPL, incorporating a unique Caribbean vibe around the stadium, all weekend.
“Some of the biggest West Indies and international stars, including the likes of the great Chris Gayle, Australia’s Chris Lynn, Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi, Tridents captain Kieron Pollard, Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara, Tallawahs’ recently recruited star batsman Lendl Simmons, Pakistan all-rounder Sohail Tanvir and New Zealand superstar Kane Williamson, will be lining out for their franchises this year and they will be keen to start their campaigns on a winning note.
“So fans can be sure that the action on the field will be as exciting as the party off it for all members of the family. We would encourage supporters to buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment as we’re expecting full houses this year.”
The remaining tickets for the other six venues will go on sale as soon as the starting times are announced in the coming weeks.
