The 2021 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will take place in St Kitts & Nevis in its entirety, with all 33 games being played in the Federation. The tournament will get underway on 28 August with a similar format of games that worked so successfully in 2020 and delivered a record audience of over 500 million.

 

Last year the tournament was successfully staged in a bio-secure bubble and the Hero CPL operations team will again be working closely with the tournament’s medical advisors, local agencies and the St Kitts & Nevis government to ensure the health and safety of all those involved in the tournament as well as the local population.  St Kitts & Nevis has no COVID-19 transmission and is one of the safest places to visit in the Caribbean.

 

Warner Park has been the scene of some of the most iconic matches in Hero CPL history and this quick scoring ground will be an ideal venue for the tournament and fans can expect explosive cricket. From Chris Gayle’s brilliant hundred against the Jamaica Tallawahs in 2019 to Andre Russell’s even more explosive century against the Trinbago Knight Riders in 2016, Warner Park has had some classic individual performances. There have also been some amazing matches, not least the game that went to a Super Over finish between the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and the Knight Riders in 2019.

This is madness. St. Kitts has one ground. How are you going to play 33 matches on one ground? Antigua did the Super 50 using 2 grounds and there were so many complaints about the pitches.
This is obviously not about cricket.

Yeah I really was hoping they would of used Warner Park and at Least Conaree Grounds.
That's the only thing that surprised me the hosting all the games at one ground.

So let's see how it works out

They probably chose St Kitts because it has a good Covid record.

The article does not say dat all de matches will be at Warner Park.

Can't imagine one venue hosting 2 games a day with only 2 days break over the first 30 games

I am not against St Kitts or any island or islands staging the entire tournament but I am against all matches being played on just one ground. Does not make sense

Well the article only mention one ground. So we should just assume they forgot to mention the other venues where matches will be played?

The article also mentioned this:

The tournament will get underway on 28 August with a similar format of games that worked so successfully in 2020


And those games were played at 2 venues so lets wait and see how similar it will be.

Similar format means in terms of how it was scheduled and played, does not mean same amount of venues. You reaching with that one. I will wait for the organisers to outright confirm the amount of venues

Dummy I am not suggesting anything. I am responding on what is said in the article. I am not the only one asking the same question and many people who read that will ask the same question

are these going to be crowd-less matches or will they allow persons who have been vaccinated/quarantined attend? i have really enjoyed going to St Kitts in past years to see CPL. There is usually one weekend when you get to see all the teams play.

You missed the point, maybe conveniently. It is about playing 33 games on one ground.

So u deduced that Warner Park is the only venue from that statement?

I am suggesting that the wording of an ideal venue rather than the ideal venue leaves room the use of more than one venue

I'm not sure about the EW Park
But i do know the one in Conaree is able to stage matches

they are mentioning training on different grounds, as they were able to do when we hosted matches in the WC.

Boy don't come unless you walking with you vaccine card eh
We don't play here.
all
We start with all sports being able to have 50% occupancy and only vaccinated ppl (May 15) allowed.
So I guess that card will be a must. I'm wondering if it will be a matter of walking with the card or seeing well having a list of all vaccinated people. cause, as it is now the card, is made out of cardstock and I wouldn't want to be carrying that around every match I go to.

hahaha

I was at the Elquemedo Willett Park in 2019. I don't think it can host CPL or international matches
