Last year, twelve cricket clubs had competed for the top prize of $40,000 and a Challenge Trophy, playing through a preliminary, quarterfinal and semi-final round, with undefeated teams progressing to the final. Powergen claimed the 2020 UWI-Unicom Twenty20 title following a 14-run victory (Duckworth-Lewis), over Queen's Park Cricket Club. UNICOM Limited had sponsored the title for four consecutive years.
