How much will IDFC First pay after winning this bid?

On 25th August, it was confirmed that private sector bank IDFC First purchased the rights to serve as the title sponsor for bilateral cricket tournaments in India across all formats. Notably, the bid for this was made public on August 1 by BCCI and base price of INR 2.4 crore was established. Considering the financial burden involved, there were just two bidders including Sony Sports India Private Limited and IDFC Bank. Ultimately, IDFC First won the title rights following their bid of INR 369.6 Crore for 56 matches.

It is predicted that this will result in revenue of INR 987.84 Crores for BCCI and in comparison to the previous cycle, this represents an increase of INR 60 Lakhs per match. Paytm purchased the rights in 2015 for INR 2.4 Crore each match and later in 2019, the contract was revised with an increase of INR 1.4 Crore per match. Unfortunately, this contract was terminated in the previous year.
