Sky Sports Secures Four-Year Deal to Broadcast TATA IPL and WPL

Sky Sports has cemented its status as the go-to destination for cricket enthusiasts in the UK & Ireland with a new four-year agreement to broadcast the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) and TATA Women's Premier League (WPL). This move ensures that fans across the region can witness the thrill of T20 cricket featuring the finest players from both the men's and women's game.

The multi-year deal, commencing this year and extending until the culmination of 2027, underscores Sky Sports' commitment to delivering top-tier cricket action exclusively to its viewers. With the addition of these prestigious tournaments, Sky Sports continues to enhance its lineup of highly anticipated live cricket events, further solidifying its position as the premier destination for cricket coverage in the UK & Ireland.

The journey with the WPL commenced in February and reached a breathtaking climax with the Royal Challengers Bangalore clinching the title against the Delhi Capitals in a riveting showdown. The victory marked a significant moment for the Challengers, who secured their maiden triumph over the Capitals after five intense encounters, adding an extra layer of sweetness to their triumph.

As the TATA Indian Premier League gears up for its latest edition starting on March 22nd, Sky Sports subscribers can look forward to comprehensive coverage spanning until May. The upcoming season promises to be an electrifying spectacle with the participation of twelve notable England cricket stars, including the likes of Moeen Ali, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, and Sam Curran. Additionally, the excitement amplifies with the inclusion of Jos Buttler, the captain of England's ICC T20 World Cup 2023 squad, who will join forces with local icons Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, forming an all-star ensemble bound to captivate fans.

In total, Sky Sports will bring viewers 74 live matches from the TATA Indian Premier League in 2024 alone, ensuring an extensive and immersive cricket experience for its audience.

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director at Sky Sports, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, emphasizing the unparalleled excitement and entertainment offered by both the IPL and WPL. He remarked, "The IPL and WPL are two fantastic competitions that see the world's best players compete in front of a fanatical local audience - resulting in some of the most explosive and entertaining cricket in the calendar as we saw with the conclusion of the WPL on Sunday."

Licht added, "We're excited to bring these great live events to life on Sky Sports, adding to the already unrivalled cricket lineup this year and giving fans access to more of the sport and players that they love."

All the action from both leagues will be available for viewing on Sky Sports Cricket, while non-Sky subscribers can enjoy the matches by streaming through a NOW Sports Day or Month Membership, ensuring that no cricket enthusiast misses out on the excitement and drama unfolding in the TATA IPL and WPL.
