BCCI invites application for Women’s IPL franchise ownership

However, the board haven’t specified how many teams would make up the WIPL

After years of contemplation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have invited applications for ‘potential’ team owners to own and operate teams in the inaugural edition of the Women’s Indian Premier League (WIPL). Earlier in the year, after much deliberation and criticism from around the world, former BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly confirmed that 2023 will see the first edition of the WIPL, with the board even inviting bids for media rights, that run from 2023-27.

“The Governing Council of the IPL invites bids from reputed entities to acquire the right to own and operate a team in Women’s Indian Premier League, through a tender process,” read the statement from BCCI.

Alongside the statement, BCCI have also attached the detailed steps for the tender process. In the previously existent T20 tournament, the BCCI had three teams participating in the Women’s T20 Challenge. The deadline for the application is till January 21, 2023 (Saturday). It is yet to be seen if and whether the current IPL owners would show their interest in investing for WIPL. 

Four-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK)'s CEO, Kasi Viswanathan earlier said that the franchise are interested in owning a franchise, which remains to be seen if it will become a reality. 

“The detailed terms and conditions governing the tender process including eligibility requirements, process for submissions of bids, proposed team’s rights and obligations, etc. are contained in the ‘Invitation to Tender’ (“ITT”) which will be made available on receipt of payment of a non-refundable fee of INR 5,00,000 (Rupees Five Lakhs Only) plus any applicable Goods and Services Tax. The procedure to procure the ITT documents is enlisted in Annexure A to this document. The ITT will be available for purchase till January 21, 2023,” it added.

“BCCI reserves the right to cancel or amend the bidding process at any stage in any manner at its discretion.”
