BCCI to conduct auction for the new IPL teams on this date? - Details Revealed

It is an already known fact that BCCI is planning to add 2 more teams to the Indian Premier League 2022. Now, the auction date for the new teams has been announced to the media. October 17 is tentatively the big day for the BCCI and those intending to bid for the new teams of the IPL.

The auction is slated to take place after two days of the IPL Finals and on the day when Twenty20 World Cup kick-starts in Muscat. So, the sources report that there may be a chance that the bidding could take place in one of the Middle East cities - Dubai or Muscat. BCCI says that the final venue will be revealed later.

BCCI has marked three key dates - September 21, October 5 and October 17. The queries in regards to bidding for the teams can be sought up to September 21, the bids will be available for purchase till October 5 and the auction will be held, most likely, on October 17. There is no e-auction and the age-old practice of the closed bidding process will be followed.

The number of league matches for each team will be either 14 or 18 with a minimum of seven home and seven away games assured to each franchise. Currently, the league has eight teams and each team gets to play the same, seven home and as many away games. In the revised scenario, there should be nine home and nine away games but due to the absence of a larger window, the BCCI will likely stick with 14 games while keeping the option of 18 league games in the agreement open.
