The Tobagonian striker has served as the
destination's brand ambassador for four years.
The son-of-the-soil has previously represented
the Division at various trade shows and con-
ventions, including the World Travel Market in
the London and the Internationale Tourismus
Börse in Berlin. He has also participated in the
European-based Got to Go Tobago Road Show
series, a promotion campaign that took teams
of Division officials, stakeholders and enter-
tainers to the UK and Scandinavian region to
directly engage consumer, tour operators and
other members of the travel trade.
However, this new contract will see him play
a bigger, much more specific, role in the desti-
nation's international awareness campaign.
Yorke's extended portfolio will focus on rais-
ing the island's profile as a sports tourism des-
tination, particularly in the areas of golf and
football. His primary function will be to identify
and pursue opportunities that will benefit the
destination, including opportunities for Tobago
to host golf clinics and football training camps
for student athletes.
Yorke, who also recently renewed his con-
tract with European sports channel, Sky TV, is
eager to utilise his years of experience in the
international sports industry to develop To-
bago's profile as a sports tourism destination.
"It's a great honour for me to serve as an
ambassador for sport," he said. He promised to
do his best on behalf of Tobago and work very
closely with the Tobago House of Assembly to
develop the destination's sports tourism niche.
Deputy Chief Secretary and Secretary of
Tourism and Transportation, Assemblyman
Tracy Davidson-Celestine, identified Yorke as a
key element in the Division's destination
awareness campaign during her presentation
for the Tobago House of Assembly 2013-2014
budget debate last Thursday. She took the op-
portunity to elaborate on the details of his role
at the signing ceremony.
"Dwight Yorke still has an excellent reputa-
tion in the sporting arena," she said. "Through
this arrangement we will be engaging him as
our brand ambassador to specifically target
universities and golf clinics with the aim of
having them utilise our facilities here."
In underscoring the importance of sports
tourism to the island she highlighted the fact
that Tobago currently has excellent facilities
for hosting a variety of sporting events, includ-
ing well-maintained playing fields in almost
every community, the Dwight Yorke Stadium,
and two 18-hole golf courses.
Davidson-Celestine indicated that the thrust
to develop sports tourism would be pursued in
collaboration with the Division of Education,
Youth Affairs and Sport. She anticipated great
success from this venture, stating that, "We
expect that over the next two or three years
we will see an increase in those persons who
are involved in golf and in football and of
course an overall increase in the number of vis-
itors to our shores."

head office on Friday, June 28.
