The Indian premier league has climbed new heights after its media rights for the next five years were sold for a whopping sum of ₹48,390 crores.
With this sale, the cash-studded league has become the 2nd highest valued sports tournament in the World, just behind the NFL in terms of broadcasting.
Meanwhile, the World’s richest cricketing body got richer and is already busy executing its plans for the tournament’s future.
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has spoken about his plans for the tournament’s future.
“We will surely work on it and develop overall infrastructure for a better fan experience. A lot of new stadiums have come up, and the cricket infrastructure in this country is huge. We will redo a few stadiums and bring back IPL with completely different extravaganza and fandom next year.”
BCCI wants to renovate and develop stadiums and provide better infrastructure for a better-than-ever fan experience.
Another priority is to bring back the home and away format from next year, with each team playing home matches in their respective states.
Ganguly signed off by talking about the tournament’s success in such difficult times. “The last two years have been affected by COVID, and the biggest thing is that despite COVID, we managed to host the tournament, and this time, we had a great time in Maharashtra, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
