IPL 2020: Patanjali bidding for title sponsorship

Indian Premier League 2020: Confirming the development, Patanjali spokesperson S K Tijarawala told PTI: “We are considering this”.

Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved is considering to bid for the title sponsorship of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), according to a company official. The slot of the title sponsorship of IPL was vacated after the Chinese handset maker Vivo decided to exit from it.

The move would help the Haridwar-based firm access a global marketing platform, as Patanjali is focusing on exports for its Ayurveda-based FMCG products.


Confirming the development, Patanjali spokesperson S K Tijarawala told PTI: “We are considering this”.

“This is for Vocal For Local and making one Indian brand as global, this is the right platform. We are considering into that perspective,” he said.

However, Tijarawala also added that the company is yet to take a final call on the issue.

“We have to take a final decision, whether we would take it or not,” Tijarawala added.

According to him, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is coming with the expression of interest on Monday and it has to submit its proposal by August 14.

Last week, BCCI and Vivo decided to suspend their partnership for the 2020 IPL beginning on September 19, in the UAE, amid clamour to boycott Chinese products in the wake of the Sino-India border stand-off.

The title sponsorship is a significant part of the IPL’s commercial revenue, half of which is shared equally by the franchises.

Vivo won the IPL title sponsorship rights for five years from 2018 to 2022 for a reported sum of Rs 2,190 crore, approximately Rs 440 crore per annum.

The Haridwar-based Patanjali group has an estimated turnover of around Rs 10,500 crores. It had acquired debt-ridden Ruchi Soya in a corporate insolvency resolution process for around Rs 4,350 crore after competing with Adani Group.

Patanjali Ayurved had reported a revenue of Rs 8,329 crore in FY 2018-19. However overall the group’s turnover was much higher as Patanjali Ayurved consists of mainly its FMCG business and its Ayurvedic medicines.

Ganguly said – Forget IPL

Sourav Ganguly said, “It is difficult to organize the IPL in the circumstances that exist now.” At this time airports are closed, people are stuck in homes, offices are closed, no one can go anywhere and it looks like this will continue till mid-May.

Ganguly had said that when everything is closed in the whole world, how will the players come and if the players do not come then how will it be possible to organize the tournament. Where will you get players, where will the players travel. This is a matter of very common common sense, there is nothing in favor of sports in the whole world at any time, forget the IPL.

Coronavirus pandemic: IPL 2020 postponed to April 15, matches to be played behind closed doors

The Indian Premier League (IPL) this year has been postponed by two weeks after the franchises proposed the tournament begin on April 15.

he Indian Premier League 2020 has been postponed and the tournament could be played behind closed doors. Team owners have suggested that the T20 league be pushed back by a couple of weeks amid the coronavirus outbreak which has been declared a pandemic by the Wolrd Health Organisation.

India has banned visas till April 15 and it would be impossible for overseas stars to join the Indian Premier League. Earlier, according to reports, the franchises had said they were ready to play behind closed doors but not without their overseas players.

All stakeholders in the Indian Premier League have devised a formula so that there is no reduction in the number of matches. The postponement will also allow the foreign players to join the IPL from the start of the tournament.

The IPL Governing Council is meeting on March 14 to discuss the way ahead even as the BCCI said the two remaining ODIs of a 3-match series between India and South Africa would be played in front of empty stands.

On Friday, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said his government would not allow any IPL matches in the city with large gatherings.

“Avoid large gatherings. A lot of people might be thinking about whether it’s right to take such extreme measures. In countries where preventive measures are being taken, only there it (coronavirus outbreak) could be regulated otherwise, it keeps spreading. We have told all DMs and SDMs to strictly follow all the coronavirus cases coming up,” Sisodia told reporters.

“We have banned all sports-related gatherings. If BCCI comes up with some new format then it’s up to them. But we are banning every such sports activity where there is a possibility of thousands of people gathering. Our intent is to avoid gathering and not stop people from practicing,” Sisodia said.ADVERTISEMENT

Maharashtra health minister Rajesh Tope had also voiced his concerns over the IPL being held at a time when most of the world was taking extreme precautionary measures.

Tope said the government could either postpone the IPL matches or have the fixtures only for the televised audience.

“One thing is sure that there will be no sale of tickets,” sources in the state government said, adding a final decision will be taken soon.

“After discussion, we have come to two options: either to postpone matches or to have matches without selling tickets,” he said.

Meanwhile, the ODI series between Australia and New Zealand in Australia is also being played behind closed doors.
