St George’s Cricket Club (SGCC) finally announced today that Cup Match 2021 will be broadcast live on television, radio and online.

A spokesperson for the club said the last minute announcement was part of “HSBC’s lead sponsorship and the support of One Communications and various other supporters”.

The two-day classic will be aired live on radio on Hott 107.5FM and on Power 95.

SGCC President Neil Paynter said: “It is important for us to bring the public the game over these channels because of the restricted number of people allowed within the club grounds. We want everyone to be able to join the festivities and have the privilege of watching Cup Match at St Georges Cricket Club.”

HSBC Head of Wealth and Personal Banking, Tanya Blue, added: “For those members of the public who are not planning to be at the St George’s Cricket Club, we are happy to support our media partners as they bring you live radio and television coverage so that no one has to miss out on the excitement of this event.

“On behalf of all the staff at HSBC Bermuda I would like to wish everyone the very best Emancipation Day and Mary Price Day holidays and Cup Match event.”

Frank Amaral, CEO of One Communications, said: “We are extremely happy to assist with delivering a live viewing experience of one of Bermuda’s most iconic sporting and cultural events.

“We know how important the broadcast of Cup Match is for the community, especially while navigating a pandemic and for those who cannot attend the event in person. Sponsoring the broadcast gives everyone the opportunity to keep up with every bit of action as it unfolds. Whether you are at the game, or watching from home, we wish you a safe and enjoyable Cup Match.”
