NEW YORK, USA — Global weather and digital media leader AccuWeather on Thursday announced its official, exclusive partnership with Cricket West Indies (CWI), offering their fan base with matchday weather insights and superior forecasts for which AccuWeather is known.

The announcement comes on the heels of a ceremonial jersey-signing at AccuWeather's New York Office at 7 World Trade Center, Manhattan. CWI President Ricky Skerritt was accompanied at the ceremony by CWI Chief Executive Officer Johnny Grave. Top corporate officials representing AccuWeather included Eric Danetz, chief business officer; and Todd Olson, manager, Financial Services.

With AccuWeather as the official weather forecast provider for the cricket board, CWI will have weather insights and data integrated in a widget on their website, providing fans a glimpse into specific weather conditions in store for upcoming matches and other cricket-related events.

Skerritt said: “This partnership signals another important step forward in the growth of our use of digital platforms. This important commercial agreement will also result in added value to the information that we provide our stakeholders, especially the fans of our teams, throughout the Caribbean and the world.”
