Mystic Rhythm performer and Michelle Palmer Kaiser, managing director of Republic Bank of the East Caribbean.

Republic Bank (EC) Limited brought culture, creativity and community to cricket fans at Darren Sammy Cricket Stadium during CPL T20 in St Lucia. As the Official Banking Partner of the Caribbean Premier League T20 (CPL T20) for eight years, the bank has consistently increased the level of fan engagement year after year, and 2022 is no different.

Fans were treated to a heart-throbbing, pulsating, and truly Lucien welcome by Mystic Rhythm, led by Kristin Jemmott, and the Rapo Kabwit event, led by Jason Alcide and Moko Flix. For international visitors, it is an exciting introduction to the vibrancy and creativity of St. Lucian culture, and for our fellow citizens, it ignites their patriotism and gives all the energy to the kings of St. Lucia. I have prepared as follows.

Michelle Palmer Kaiser, managing director of Republic Bank for the Eastern Caribbean region, explains: Our bank sees art and culture as a way to express and share its spirit to unite the fans at the venue. When we support local performance artists, we also support their communities at the grassroots level. On the surface we may see tibanans and stilt walkers and dancers, but we see costume designers, choreographers and makeup artists all uplifted by the path we have created. Supporting our culture and creativity supports communities at the grassroots level. “

The St Lucia performance company are deeply appreciative of the opportunity to showcase their finest talent to an international cricket audience, a spokesperson for the group said: He was selected by the Bank of the Republic to represent the 2022 CPL Games this year in St. Lucia. We have created genuine vibrancy and wowed national and international audiences. Thank you Republic Bank! “

The ‘Five For Fun’ youth cricket program in partnership with Cricket West Indies has made its official live debut. Spectators in stadiums and around the world were treated to an entertaining five-innings match played by the program’s first graduates during the intermission.Tomorrow’s young cricket stars will showcase their newly learned skills Simmons Joules, coordinator of Five for Fun in St. Lucia, praised the program. “I am very happy to be part of this programme. This Five For Fun is history in the making and I think it has done well because it has taken the CPL to another level.Cricket has a rich history in the Caribbean. Cricket is no ordinary sport, it means a lot to us and to our culture, and Five For Fun, by introducing cricket to children, will bring us back to that level.”

A new concept for under-12 short-format cricket, designed for participation by both boys and girls at the primary education level, will be piloted in Saint Lucia in 2021, in partnership with Cricket West Indies (CWI). I was. This year it will be expanded to the entire region. Palmer-Kezier explains:

Throughout the four-day leg of CPL T20, there were giveaways and high-impact efforts by The Bank’s promotions team, along with the joy of St. Lucia’s cricket fans. A handful of fans were randomly selected to livestream his CPL at the Republic Bank Fanstand, sharing the energy with viewers around the world. Participants were also provided with branded merchandise and snacks. All of this helped make the final match at Darren Sammy Stadium more memorable as he witnessed the Kings of St Lucia win by 61 runs. Republic Bank’s commitment to preserving the spirit of Caribbean cricket is unparalleled.
