The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has been growing into a very competitive T20 league since it started back in 2013. The next edition of the event will take place this September, and six teams will battle it out once more to take home the CPL trophy. CPL T20 2019 tickets will be on sale soon.
The dates for the 2019 edition of the tournament have been set between 4 September – 12 October 2019, although no fixtures have been released yet.

The CPL has done a great job ensuring that fans from all over the world can enjoy the CPL action, and while this is yet to be confirmed as happening again in 2019, it looks likely that it will. The league have negotiated many TV deals with different companies covering the games in many countries, however, they have also set up a streaming deal on Twitter, to show live games on there. This means if your country hasn’t agreed on a TV deal with the CPL, you will still be able to watch the games live via a Twitter stream.
The CPL has many broadcasting deals in various parts of the world, and they also have a streaming deal with Facebook, meaning if your country doesn’t broadcast the CPL, you will be able to stream the games on Facebook.
