Mission Statement

In 2006, Sobers Holdings Incorporated was founded by Daniel Sobers, Sir Garfield’s son, to manage the GarrySobers Barbados brand. The company’s mission is to create a gateway for all things “Garry Sobers” and to make it possible for his admirers to not only learn more, but have greater access to the man himself. Here also, the youth can learn about Sir Garfield and be inspired and assisted to reach their cricketing potential.

“It’s so difficult to just pin point one when there have been so many in my lifetime, one would say that your first test century and turning it into a world record of 365 would be considered your greatest achievement but there are so many that followed. Being knighted by the Queen, being given the Order of Australia by the Australian Prime Minister and also being given the Barbadian National Award of National Hero. I don’t think that you can be beat when you are honoured by your own people in that way. So it is difficult, but if I had to choose one I’d have to say that being given the title of a Barbadian National Hero is probably one of the greatest awards that I have achieved considering that there is only ten such individuals in our history and I don’t know if there will be any others named again.”
