INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE “The Indian Premier League is the greatest sport and entertainment venture ever undertaken in this country,” – LalitModi, chairman of the IPL.The Indian Premier League or IPL is a 20-20 format cricket tournament. This league was formed by the Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) and sanctioned by the International Cricket Committee (ICC).
CONCEPT OF INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE The BCCI launched the Indian Premier League (IPL) on the lines of football’s English Premier League and the National Basketball League (NBA) of the US. The IPL is a professional Twenty20 cricket league created and promoted by the BCCI and backed by the ICC.
KEY FEATURES OF IPL IPL has been conceived on the lines of the English premier league, where local football teams with a defined fan base(supporters) play against each other. The idea behind IPL is to sell cricket as a high involvement reality show that would appeal to all audiences. IPL has eight teams sold to franchises for perpetuity. These franchises can run the league in their individual styles and can raise resources from the primary market.
OPENING DOORS TO THE NEXT BIG MEDIA MOVEMENT IPL- already a US$ 2bn property, is essentially an attempt to sell cricket as a reality show. Some of the franchisee would look at IPL as a means to promote their brand (UB group) while the others would look it as a financial investment e.g. (India Cements). Our belief is that the three successful teams could easily do revenues of Rs 3bn per year in the next three-four years
IPL – Honey its all about money!!!(Players prospective) Top players are earning minimum 1-2 crores per season. (with highest being Mahendra Singh Dhoni how is paid 6 crores per season). Lalit Modi rightly points out, “It benefits world cricket because it benefits all their players - they are able to supplement their income by coming to us,"
IPL – ‘Manoranjan ka baap‘(Spectators prospective) IPL is an opportunity to take cricket to new audiences, new frontiers. The emphasis on innovation and the fan-friendly format have already proven wildly popular at domestic level in England, South Africa and Australia.“If all the development programmes are put in place, it could usher in a new chapter. I sincerely believe that the IPL is history in the making” [….] “For me, the most fascinating aspect of Indian cricket is the passion the crowds have for the sport. It is amazing and it is no wonder [...] - Adam Gilchrist
IPL – Are we going to make money? (Franchise prospective) IPL team owners have two channels of revenue, central and local.· Central - Includes Media, sponsorship and suppliers, which BCCI will sells and shares with the teams.· Local - Includes things like stadium ticket sales, local sponsorship. Concessions, merchandise et al,which franchisees will be responsible for selling.
IPL – We have nothing to lose!!! (BCCI’s prospective) Only Money Matter
