Eastern to sponsor Women’s T20 league
Eastern Credit Union is committed to the development of cricket in Trinidad and Tobago and for the fifth straight year will sponsor the Premier League involving the top clubs bidding for attractive prizes and incentives.
At the recent launch of the two-day competition which ends on the weekend of May 14, 15 and organised by the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board it was revealed that Eastern Credit Union’s overall expenditure this season will cost more than $600,000.
The fact that one of the leading credit unions was standing solidy behind the top local cricket competition in the midst of financial concerns by corporate organisations was not lost on Christopher Power, vice-president of Eastern Credit Union.
Power emphasised that to opt out of the relationship with the T&TCB was not an option and that they are going further in 2011 by sponsoring the first ever women’s T20 League competition.
This boost for women’s cricket which is growing in popularity and participation fueled by the emergence of West Indies women’s team captain Merissa Aguilleira and top players such as the Mohammed twin sisters Anisa and Alisa from T&T will cost ECU more than $41,000 in its first season.
“Nothwithstanding our financial contribution to both leagues, we wish to state that Eastern Credit Union will also be hosting the end-of-the-year prize giving ceremony, in addition to providing promotional branding material and outfitting the umpires and match officials,” said Power.
