Curaçao entering the Caribbean Series for the first time in 2023
WILLEMSTAD- May 13, 2022 — The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) and the Curaçao Baseball Federation (Federashon di Beisbòl di Kòrsou, or FEBEKO) recently signed a sponsorship agreement. Under this agreement, the CTB will provide the federation with funding for three years to cover the cost of taking part in international tournaments. The signing of the agreement is part of CTB’s strategy for promoting tourism through sport. The agreement was signed by the Deputy Director of CTB, Hugo Clarinda, and FEBEKO President, Jedrek Magdalena. The signing took place in the presence of the Minister of Economic Development, Ruisandro Cijntje.
To further promote Curaçao through sport, Minister Cijntje also managed to reach an agreement with the Caribbean Series organizing committee for Curaçao to enter the Caribbean Series for the first time in February 2023. This is definitely a major achievement, as the Caribbean Series is a prestigious event in the world of baseball, with fans spread particularly across Latin America and the Caribbean. FEBEKO will be in charge of putting together the team that will represent Curaçao during this important championship.
With the support of the Curaçao government, the CTB continues to pursue its strategy of promoting tourism through sport.
