Viacom 18 to telecast Women’s T20 Challenge

Viacom18 obtained the Women’s Indian Premier League (IPL) media rights worth for the 2023-2027 cycle for a staggering Rs 951 crore, equating to INR 7.09 crore for each match for the next five years.

On January 25, the BCCI will reveal the five WIPL franchises. The announcement comes after the Women Indian Premier League (WIPL) media rights were auctioned off on Monday. On Monday, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah verified the news on his Twitter account.

BCCI Secretory confirmed the news on Twitter

“Congratulations @viacom18 for winning the Women’s @IPL media rights. Thank you for your faith in @BCCI and @BCCIWomen. Viacom has committed INR 951 crores which means per match value of INR 7.09 crores for the next 5 years (2023-27). This is massive for Women’s Cricket,” Jay Shah tweeted on Monday.

Viacom has contributed INR 951 crore for the next five years, with INR 7.09 crore allocated to each match.

The Women’s T20 Challenge began as an exhibition competition, but the BCCI decided last year to launch the WIPL, with the first season’s first match slated for March. The BCCI has not yet revealed the tournament’s schedule, but it is commonly assumed that the inaugural season, consisting of 22 matches, will take place between March 5 and March 23.

How Auction will be conducted?

Uncapped cricketers have two options, but players with caps—those who have represented India or are currently on a central contract—can choose between Rs. 30 lacs, Rs. 40 lacs, or Rs. 50 lacs as their basic price (Rs. 10 lacs and Rs. 20 lacs).

Prior to the WIPL, the base price was divided into five categories, with prices ranging from Rs. 10 lacs to Rs. 50 lacs. The registration deadline for the auction is January 26. The WIPL will surely be a new thing in the Indian cricket circuit.
