Jamaica to stage World Cup ceremony


World Cup organisers, the ICC Cricket World Cup West Indies 2007 Inc, has announced that the opening ceremony for next year’s tournament will be a collaborative undertaking among all the host venues, spearheaded by Jamaica.

Stating that a decision has been taken to keep this event in-house, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the ICC CWC WI 2007 Inc., Chris Dehring, said plans are well underway to ensuring that first taste of Cricket World Cup showcases the Caribbean’s rich heritage — cricket and otherwise — and talent and creativity of its people.

ìWhile we obviously cannot divulge details of the opening ceremony, it will be a reflection of this region and its amazing cricketing, musical and entertainment culture. The challenge is to fuse all special elements which make the Caribbean unique and appealing destination it is.”

The opening ceremony, which will herald start of the six-week tournament across nine Caribbean countries, is scheduled for Sunday, March 11, 2007, at the new Trelawny multi-purpose stadium in Jamaica.

Jamaica Local Organising Committee (LOC) has been given the responsibility for overseeing its planning in conjunction with fellow local organising committees from other eight host venues. This is one event in Cricket World Cup that will showcase entire Caribbean to the world, said Jamaica LOC CEO, Robert Bryan.
