LONDON, Nov. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — In a historic move, St Kitts and Nevis will be one of four Caribbean countries to host the International Cricket Council (ICC) Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup in 2022. The tournament will feature 16 countries in 48 matches and will run from January 14th to February 5th. Teams that will play at the Warner Park Sporting Complex and the Conaree Cricket Center in St Kitts and Nevis will include India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Canada, the UAE, England, the West Indies, Scotland and Australia.
ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup Director Fawwaz Baksh applauded government efforts to arrange tax waivers, cricket infrastructure updates, and hotel collaboration to ensure accommodation for all 16 teams, match officials and support staff. He stated that the matches would have a significant impact on cricket’s legacy and help boost host economies.
Many community clubs and grounds will see an improvement in their cricketing infrastructure following this event. He said that there would be a positive financial impact on host territories in terms of accommodation bookings, transport, catering and hiring temporary staff.
Jonel-Powell , ‘ The Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture called the tournament “a historic event” for his country. The ICC will help to increase awareness and interest around the sport and our tourism product. We provide the best facilities, hospitality, and service.
“With the help of funds like the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme, we have been focusing on the development of our island’s sports infrastructure with accommodations that prioritise health and safety guidelines for all visitors we host. “
St Kitts and Nevis’ CBI Programme has been ranked the best in the world by the Financial Times PWM magazine. This Programme has not only made investors’ lives easier by providing them second citizenship, hassle-free travel, and asset diversification, but also added value to the country’s economy, tourism, and education sectors. CBI funded the construction of an international track for athletics on Nevis. In 2020, CBI made up to 35% of the government revenue. While citizenship hopefuls do not need to reside or visit the country, they must complete the most rigorous due diligence checks. Once successful, applicants can contribute US$150,000 to a government fund, which remains the fastest and safest route to a second citizenship. This grants you lifetime rights to reside, work, and study in the country as well as access to top-quality healthcare and education. Those successful can also travel to over 160 destinations without a pre-departure visa.
While building sports tourism as a niche market, “the ICC Cricket World Cup 2022 will show that St Kitts and Nevis and the Caribbean as a whole have become world-class destinations for international sporting events,” Minister Powell added.
