Jay Shah earlier informed through his Twitter handle that Viacom18 has successfully won the media rights for WPL
The inaugural edition of the Women's Premier League is inching closer and the Secretary of the Board of Cricket Council of India (BCCI) informed on Wednesday that the board has received Rs. 4,669.99 crores for the bidding of teams. Shah called it the beginning of the revolution in Women's cricket, as the bidding for the inaugural Women's Premier League was higher than the inaugural Men's IPL in 2008.
“This marks the beginning of a revolution in women's cricket and paves the way for a transformative journey ahead not only for our women cricketers but for the entire sports fraternity. The #WPL would bring necessary reforms in women's cricket and would ensure an all-encompassing ecosystem that benefits every stakeholder," the secretary added.
The Secretary also added that the league will be named as Women's Premier League (WPL).
Jay Shah earlier informed through his Twitter handle that Viacom18 has successfully won the media rights for WPL. Viacom has committed ₹951 crores which means per match value of INR 7.09 crores for the next 5 years (2023-27), Shah said.
