Government Provides $50,000 Cup Match Funding

“We shall never forget the importance of this annual two-day cricket classic. Cup Match is so much more than a two-day cricket game – it is part of our culture and heritage,” said Premier, the Hon. David Burt, JP, MP,  at the cheque presentation to the Somerset Cricket Club.

“The Government understands that for both Clubs to host Cup Match is a big financial undertaking. We know the clubs rely on the corporate community for sponsorship and support. However, additional funding is required. The government will continue to support both Clubs to recognise the historical and cultural significance of the Cup Match. Today, I am honoured to present a cheque for $50,000 to the Somerset Cricket Club.

“On behalf of the Government of Bermuda, I commend Vashun Blanchette, President of Somerset Cricket Club and the club officers for their hard work in preparing the grounds in anticipation of the 2022 Cup Match. I also extend best wishes to both cricket teams.”
