The West Indies Indies team is scheduled to play two 20/20 matches against New Zealand near Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Sat June 30th and Sun July 1st.
It's the first time the West Indies is playing in the USA Bravo, Pollard, Narine, and Gayle will be back on the West Indies team for this historic event.
Gresham Entertainment, has partnered with the West Indies Cricket Board to do the "Greens" Party Stand for both games – premium drinks inclusive, live artists, DJs, cutters/food etc – basically a Caribbean style party prior, during, and after the game!
The creation of “The Greens by Gresham” continues the iconic West Indies Cricket tradition of mixing the ultimate all inclusive Caribbean party experience with one of the world’s most popular sports. The Greens is a mix of great atmosphere, great music and non-stop beverages throughout the games. The Greens will be the ultimate party stand experience and offers cricket audiences in the USA a chance to not only partake, but create their own cricketing memories similar to those of its iconic sister stands throughout the islands.
Tickets for the Party Stand are USD $65 (inclusive of entrance ticket, drinks, entertainment etc). Tickets are available at www.ticketmaster.com (search for West Indies), the WICB website – www.windiescricket.com, and www.windiesweekend.com.
The development of Windies 20/20 Weekend (2012) is geared towards not only increasing the overall awareness around the 20/20 games being held in Florida, but also the beginning of establishing the West Indies Cricket brand as a viable marketing medium for mainstream corporate brands to partner within the USA. Windies 20/20 Weekend will create a euphoric Caribbean vibe across multiple cities in North America with the creation of 20 events, leading up to and spanning the weekend of the games in Florida. The scope of the events is consistent with the promotion and execution of other international sporting events within the US market (American Football, Baseball etc).
