Friday, February 11, 2005 - World Cup Saint Lucia and the Saint Lucia National Cricket Association have agreed to collaborate on the hosting of the two back-to-back One Day Internationals between Pakistan and the West Indies, to be held in Saint Lucia in May of this year.

This partnership was born out of the need to use the international cricket matches to be staged in Saint Lucia over the next two years, as dress rehearsals for Saint Lucia’s participation in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup.

This joint effort is expected to allow Saint Lucia’s Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup to initiate the implementation of new measures for, among other things, security, media management, protocol, traffic management, VIP management, and event operations at the games. The Saint Lucia National Cricket Association, on the other hand, will benefit from the human resource of World Cup Saint Lucia and the transfer of the knowledge and experience of the experts contracted by the ICC Cricket World Cup WI 2007 Inc., to prepare and plan for the hosting of the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

As has become customary over the past three years, the Saint Lucia Tourist Board will also join this collaborative effort, through the provision of marketing and logistical support.

World Cup Saint Lucia Inc. is the company formed to coordinate and execute the plans for Saint Lucia’s participation in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup. Its two shareholders are the Government of Saint Lucia and the Saint Lucia National Cricket Association.
