To say that Cup Match is a popular Bermuda Event is a bit of an understatement. The entire country celebrates Cup Match including both locals and guests at our Bermuda Resorts.
About the Cup Match:
Fans of Cricket in Bermuda put most other sports fans to shame. When Cup Match, which features two teams from opposite ends of Bermuda, takes place, the entire country goes on holiday. Obviously, cricket is much-loved in Bermuda, and the fact that Cup Match is a holiday means that fans are able to celebrate together.
This Cricket Match pits two Island rivals against each other. Fans of both St. George’s and Somerset, are fiercely loyal. You’ll notice that many are wearing their team’s colors as a way to show support to their favorite.
The game takes place over two days, and if you arrive at the Cricket Club early, you will be able to get a seat to watch the games. Those wearing red and blue are supporting Somerset. Those wearing blue and light blue are showing their loyalty to St. George’s.
If you’re a fan of cricket then there is no better time to visit our Bermuda Resort. Even if you’re not familiar with the sport, if you visit during this Bermuda Event you can learn about it and decide for yourself if it’s worth all the enthusiastic celebrations.
Keep in in mind that many stores and other businesses will be closed during the Cup Match. While Shopping might not be on agenda during this Bermuda Event, but there are plenty of other things for guests at our Bermuda Resort to do if you’re not interested in the Cup Match festivities.
