IPL Media Rights Tender : NFL Costliest Sporting property at 133 Crore per match, can IPL break the RECORD on SUNDAY: Follow IPL Tender Live Updates
According to industry estimates, IPL Per Match value in the e-auction will easily cross 100 Crore mark. And if that happens, IPL will become the World’s second most Costliest Sporting property.
IPL will overtake the likes of Premier League, Major League Baseball in Per Match Value:
The incumbent, Star India, acquired IPL media rights at Rs 16,348 crore for the 2018-22 period.
For the 2023-27 period, the BCCI has set the base price at Rs 32,890 crore.
The base price for TV rights is Rs 49 crore per match. Digital rights base-price is Rs 33 crore per match.
From the industry perspective contrarian views are coming up on the values. Few like Elara Securities have predicted bid in RANGE of 60,000 Crore for entire package.
This will take IPL Per Match value above NFL which looks unlikely according to others.
“TV price per match may not see increase more than 20-25%. But the big increase will come from Digital Rights package. All put together the values can touch 115-120 Cr per match according to our estimates. Anything above that will be very difficult for anyone to digest”, said Sports Media Rights veteran and CEO of Sporty Solutionz Ashish Chadha
“I will not be surprised if it doesn’t cross Rs 40,000 crore. But competitive heat can take it over, Rs 50000 crore. But I really doubt it will go there” declared Harish Thawani, former CEO of Neo Sports
