KINGSTON, Jamaica - The Wray & Nephew Group, through its White Overproof Rum brand, will replace Digicel as the new title sponsor of the Jamaican Premier League.

Wray & Nephew last sponsored the league in 2002, and in 2006 it extended the contract until 2012. However, the deal ended abruptly in 2007 after Wray & Nephew released the Jamaica Football Federation from its contract without penalty.

At the time, Wray & Nephew officials stated that they stood ready to continue supporting football should any opportunity arise in the future. Today, they are making a return after 16 years.

Digicel took over the title sponsorship from Red Stripe in 2020 in a deal worth $200 million for three years.
