You’re sure to be bowled over by this behind-the-scenes cricket-lovers excursion, guided by legendary player Keith Fredericks, allowing you to pay homage to the team’s stadium and Hall of Fame before joining a former cricketing great for an autograph and photo session.
Start your day by meeting your driver at 9:30am at a pre-arranged location in St. John’s, proceeding to Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, named after this island nation’s prodigal son of cricket. Upon arrival at the stadium, meet up with legendary cricket player Keith Fredericks (Freddo), who will guide your VIP exploration of the stadium, built in 2007 for the Cricket World Cup. Marvel at this famous sporting site and listen in as Fredericks shares a few anecdotes from his playing days at this famous venue.
Proceed on to the now-defunct Stanford Cricket Ground, a venue that is typically off-limits to the public, where you can peruse the West Indies Cricket Hall of Fame and learn about the team’s most celebrated players.
Continue your exploration of West Indies cricket at the famous Antigua Recreation Ground (ARG), where you’ll have time to investigate the site’s clubhouse and field. During the stop, listen as Fredericks shares more memories of matches past, and hear stories about one of the team’s most passionate fans, named Gravy, whose antics entertained countless West Indies supporters.
Finish your day with a private session with one of the West Indies’ cricket legends. Depending on the day and schedule, it could be Richie Richardson, Curtly Ambrose, Andy Roberts or even the iconic Viv Richards himself. Spend 30 to 45 minutes reliving the greatest moments of the team’s history with your cricket hero, and make sure to get a photo and autograph to remember the occasion.
Then return to your minibus, which will drop you off at the tour’s starting point.
