The relationship between the ANSA McAL Group and sports in T&T is well known.
Through its retail subsidiary known as the Carib Brewery Ltd, the leading Caribbean conglomerate continues to support and invest in the sport which is a well-known enabler of discipline among those taking the field of play, promoting the culture of camaraderie and while building communities.
From cricket to football, and the just concluded Great Race, the company’s name is known to all.
That support for sport was reflected at the weekend at the blink/bmobile Twenty20 for 50 Cricket Festival held at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain.
The event was staged as a sporting gift to the nation on its 50th Anniversary of Independence.
From the ANSA McAL Hospitality Suite at the venue, company officials and their guests cheered on the T&T Red Force, led by Denesh Ramdin, to advance to the final against Jamaica and to ultimately beat the visitors, adding to the nation’s celebratory mode.
