The world of sports has undergone a major transformation in recent times.The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a manifestation of the modern sport, where sponsors and broadcasters are as crucial as viewers and the players themselves. The English Premier League, one of the most popular footballevents, has been a pioneer in successfully blending the interests of corporates and sports-lovers alike. In nearly two decades of its existence, the EPL has sustained corporate interest and viewership, while never compromising with the standards of the game. Marred by controversies and concerns over declining viewership, the IPL too must set its house in order to establish itself at par with the leading club and franchise events of the world.
The GNLU Center for Sports Law (GCSL), in its endeavour to reflect uponthe leading sports concerns of the country, launches a Working Paper Series on “What the IPL must learn from the EPL”.
