Business Model of this WIPL

The sale of the women’s IPL media rights, which Viacom 18 purchased for INR 951 crore (about USD 116.7 million) for a five-year period between 2023 and 2027, brought in a sizable profit for the BCCI recently. Under the revenue-sharing model, the women’s IPL will distribute 80% of the media rights money to the five franchises in the first five years. This is significant – as was seen in the men’s IPL – in offsetting a major part of the franchises’ operational costs.
