Monday 8th June 2015 – Kingston, Jamaica: New Guyana Pharmaceutical Company Incorporated (NEW GPC INC), under its popular Limacol brand, has today confirmed that it will continue as a Principal Partner of the Caribbean Premier League. As part of the agreement, Limacol will become Umpires and Referees Partner, which will see Limacol represented on the Umpires’ uniforms and during the Third Umpire review.

We are very pleased to extend the strong relationship with Limacol into 2015 and we thank the company for its continuing support of the Biggest Party in Sport.”
Global superstars including Kevin Pietersen, Jacques Kallis and Shahid Afridi will join the Caribbean’s finest cricketers, like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo, as well as exciting up-and-coming local talent.
Last year’s tournament attracted a global audience in excess of 65 million and this year is set to be even higher as fans across the world continue to be drawn to the high quality action on the pitch and the unique party atmosphere off it.
