IPL Earns More Than EPL Says Sourav Ganguly
The most popular sport in the world is football. But cricket has also spread rapidly. According to Sourav Ganguly, the Indian Premier League IPL earns more than the English Premier League EPL.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the fastest growing sports tournaments in the world. Huge fan-followers in the world of cricket enjoy this franchise tournament.
Twenty-two-yard bat-and-ball fights have become more popular for the benefit of franchise tournaments. Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly gave more startling information.
“I have seen the game (cricket) develop, where players like me could earn only a few hundred rupees, now it is possible for cricketers to earn crores of rupees,” Sourav Ganguly told NDTV. The game will continue to evolve. ”
He added, “IPL now earns more than the English Premier League. It makes me happy and proud. Because, the game I love – it’s gotten so strong. ”
Two teams have been added since the 15th edition of IPL in 2022, Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. Gujarat won the trophy for the first time in 64 matches. Corona allowed 50 percent of the spectators to enter the field early in the tournament, but 100 percent from the playoffs.
The popularity of Indian Premier League (IPL) is increasing day by day. The tournament has been organized in the 15th edition of the last IPL. The number of teams has been increased. At the same time the number of cricket has increased. Competitive cricket has also been seen.
The duration of the tournament has also increased from before. The two-month-long tournament has also generated huge sums of money. BCCI has earned hundreds of crores of rupees from the sponsoring organization. The title sponsor comes from Tata and other co-sponsors. Outside of this, broadcast rights are sold for huge sums of money.
However, the amount of money is so high that the franchise tournament has surpassed the popular football tournament English Premier League (EPL). And that demand has been made by BCCI chairman Sourav Ganguly himself. He said that the income of IPL is more than that of English Premier League.
In this context, Sourav Ganguly said, ‘IPL earns more than the English Premier League. It makes me proud and very happy that I am involved in this game. It (IPL arrangement) is getting stronger day by day.
