BCCI Makes Cost- Cutting in IPL 2020 - Insides of IPL Finances!

Updated on April 8, 2024 , 15781 views

There is no doubt that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the richest cricket body in the world. The reason behind the BCCI’s financial strength is IPL, which is the most lucrative cricket tournament in the world. Indian and international cricket players love to participate in the league because of the sport and whopping prize money.

With a lot of consideration and cost-cutting this year, the BCCI has finally announced the IPL 2020 season. But, as the pandemic is unpredictable if at all this season gets cancelled, then the BCCI has to bear a huge loss of Rs. 4000 crore.

The on-going Coronavirus also largely affected the overall Economy, which has led to many changes in IPL travel policies, prize money, venue cost, etc. Read on to know about the insides of IPL 2020 finances!

The IPL 2020 will begin from 19 September 2020 to 10 November 2020 in the United Arab Emirates. The IPL matches will be played in Dubai, Sharjah & Abu Dhabi.

IPL Value & Earnings

In 2017, the valuation was $5.3 billion, which increased to $6.3 billion in 2018. In 2019, IPL has seen a growth of 7% as compared to 2018. The IPL value increased from Rs. 41,800 crores to Rs. 47,500 crores.

The BCCI earns huge money from the media rights contract. Star TV has already paid Rs. 2000 crore in advance. Vivo has been a sponsor for a long time, but due to tensions on the Indo-China border, the BCCI has paused the Vivo’s sponsorship.

The IPL 2020 is sponsored by Dream11 with a whopping amount of Rs. 222 crore for a period of 4 months and 13 days.

What does BCCI do with the Money?

The money earned from the IPL matches is being used to pay salaries of Indian cricketers. And, a fair share goes to domestic cricket in India. Also, it is used to organise over 2000 domestic matches every year.

Not only men, but women also embrace the same interest in cricket, so the BCCI spends money on women’s cricket and other sporting activities.
