Sky Sports & TATA Renew IPL, WPL Partnerships


Sky Sports will continue to be home to the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) and TATA Women’s Premier League (WPL) in the U.K. and Ireland for the next four years.

The multiyear deal to broadcast two of the sport’s top T20 tournaments starts this year, running until the end of 2027. It will add to the existing lineup of cricket’s live events, exclusively available on Sky Sports and NOW.

The TATA IPL begins on March 22, with live coverage of the competition running until May.

Sky Sports customers will be able to watch 74 live matches from the TATA IPL in 2024. All the action from both leagues will be available to watch on Sky Sports Cricket, and non-Sky subscribers can stream the action with a NOW Sports Day or Month Membership.

Jonathan Licht, managing director at Sky Sports, said: “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 unrivaled cricket lineup this year and giving fans access to more of the sport and players that they love.”
