The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has announced the tournament’s economic impact across the Caribbean. The 2019 event, which took place between 4 September and 12 October last year, created a total economic impact of US$136,542,868 in the region, a 7.21% increase on the results from 2018. This figure has been calculated using organiser spend, visitor spend and media value and was collated for the tournament by world-renowned researchers.

The 34 match tournament took place in six Caribbean countries, with games taking place in Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia and Trinidad & Tobago. The tournament increased the positive economic impact it made on each of those countries in 2019 compared with the figures from 2018. In addition to that economic impact figure the Hero CPL employed more than 1500 staff.
