BT Sport has secured a multi-year agreement to broadcast every ball of the 2021 Hero Caribbean Premier League. The three-week cricket tournament starts on August 26th.
The broadcast adds to BT Sport’s multi-year agreement to broadcast all domestic and international cricket from the West Indies, which has already seen South Africa, Australia and Pakistan tour the Caribbean this summer. BT Sport’s growing portfolio of cricket also includes exclusive broadcast rights of New Zealand’s men’s and women’s home internationals.
Rachel Knight, director of sports rights, BT Sport, commented: “BT Sport’s cricket line-up continues to grow as we show more world-class cricket to fans across the UK. The Caribbean Premier League will kick off an exciting period for cricket lovers on BT Sport which in early 2022 includes exclusively live coverage of England’s tour of the West Indies.”
