The Barbados Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise will change its name following a deal that sees the Royals Sports Group (EM Sporting Holdings Ltd.), the owners of the Rajasthan Royals IPL (Indian Premier League) franchise acquire a majority stake in the team.
The two-time CPL champions will be rebranded as the Barbados Royals, a partner franchise of the Rajasthan Royals, as the Royals Sports Group seeks to expand its global presence.
The Barbados Royals was the Hero CPL champion in 2014 and 2019 and the team is led by West Indies all-arounder, Jason Holder.
The team will get its 2020 campaign against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Aug. 26 at Warner Park, St. Kitts.
