Biggest party in sport will be played in Central Broward Stadium between 28-31 July
USA international Steven Taylor proud to be a part of cricketing history in his home state
The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) are delighted to announce that the Ticket Office at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center, located next to the Central Broward Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, will open tomorrow.
The Ticket Office will be open for business from Monday to Friday (10am-5pm) and on Saturday (12 – 4pm) to enable fans to physically buy their tickets in advance for the biggest party in sport this summer.
Supporters can already buy tickets online at www.cplt20.com and are urged to buy in advance to avoid disappointment.
Some of the biggest stars in world cricket, including West Indies stars Dwayne Bravo, Chris Gayle and Kieron Pollard, alongside South Africa's AB de Villiers, New Zealand's Brendon McCullum and Australia's Shane Watson, will descend on Florida between 28-31 July in what will be a gripping final round of matches before the finals the following week.
The Ticket Office at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center will provide supporters in the Sunshine State another outlet to sign up for the biggest party in sport which marks an historic chapter both for CPL and professional cricket in the USA.
Local favourite Steven Taylor, a USA international all-rounder who will feature once more for Barbados Tridents having represented his country on 18 occasions to date, said: "As a Florida man, born and bred, I am hugely honoured to be involved in this incredible departure for professional cricket in the USA. There is a huge cricket audience across America who are craving for the opportunity to see some of the biggest names in world cricket, and CPL's decision to play these six games in Central Broward Stadium is huge for the sport.
"There has been a huge take up across America, with supporters coming from as far north as New York and as far west as Texas and Los Angeles, but it's great now for Floridians to have an outlet at the ground to buy tickets. Things are really building and we want to see full houses across all six matches. Given the interest levels, I'd urge everyone to buy tickets early so we can put on a show and a celebration of Caribbean cricket that will captivate the entire cricketing world."
