We wrote about how from homegrown start-ups to lesser-known brands, IPL sponsorship has undergone a shift. With names like Dream 11, Unacademy, Equitas Small Finance Bank Limited, Performax, Ralco Tyres, Jai Raj Steel, Double Horse and FanCode Shop on board, IPL 2020 has a completely new support base.

Meanwhile, IPL teams have been closing last-minute sponsorship deals as Covid hits revenue. According to industry experts, franchises will make Rs 10-15 crore minus the central pool revenue.

Star India has been aiming for a bigger share of the digital pie for this IPL. It has been learnt that the network is offering packages ranging from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 5 crore for advertising on digital.
