Providence Stadium is the home ground of the team located in Guyana having capacity of 15,000 people. Out of 10 the team will play 4 matches at their home ground in the CPL 2016. The first encounter of GAW team will be against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots on 30th June 2016 at Basseterre, St Kitts and the players have started their practice session for the upcoming matches. Almost all the overseas and domestic players of the team with the supporting staff have joined the franchises for the tournament.

If we look at the performance of Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean premier league, they have reached to the finals twice, one in the inaugural season where they lost the game against Jamaica Tallawahs and in 2014 they lost against Barbados Tridents by 8 runs with D/L method. Last year they reached to the semi-finals. So this shows that team is performing but couldn’t make it completely do far. Hope this time they can take the trophy home and create a history for his team and the nation.
