How popular is the IPL?

The popularity of the IPL cannot be overstated. In 2018, the final between Chennai Super Kings and Sun Risers Hyderabad saw 10 million concurrent users tune in to livestream the game, in what was a world record at the time.

In total, last year’s edition of the IPL had 462 million viewers tune in to watch all the action across television and internet-based platforms.

Star Sports India paid nearly 2.4 billion USD in 2017 to secure IPL television and digital rights for five years, or about 500 million USD for each season. The contract is up for renewal in 2022, and the eventual figure is likely to be even higher.
