The Indian Premier League (IPL) will be broadcasted on Sky Sports for UK and Ireland cricket fans for the next three years. 

Sky Sports agreed a deal with the IPL to showcase cricket’s largest competition whilst renewing a deal to retain broadcasting rights to the Women’s Premier League (WPL). 

The IPL and WPL will be exclusively broadcasted on Sky Sports and NOW platforms from 2024-2027. 

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director at Sky Sports, commented: “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. 

“We’re excited to bring these great live events to life on Sky Sports, adding to the already unrivalled cricket line up this year and giving fans access to more of the sport and players that they love.”

The 2024 IPL season will feature as many as 12 England players, including ODI and T20 Captain Jos Buttler for the Rajasthan Royals, set to commence on Sky Sports today (22 March), until the final in May. 

Elsewhere, the IPL announced TATA Group as its title sponsor in a five-year agreement following a record-breaking deal. 

TATA Group has previously held the title sponsorship rights in 2022 and 2023 and became the title sponsor of the WPL.
