The Foxtel Group has extended its long-term partnership with the Tata Indian Premier League which will see it continue as the exclusive tournament broadcaster in Australia with games to be shown live on Fox Sports, available on Foxtel and Kayo Sports, until at least 2027.
The renewed five-year deal will see
74 matches made available to its 4.4 million subscribers each season, with the
number of Tata IPL games expected to grow over the course of the term.
It follows a historic agreement
with Cricket Australia announced in January that includes rights to all home
Men’s and Women’s Tests, One Day Internationals and T20is, as well as the Big
Bash League and Women’s Big Bash League matches.
Sports is also home to other premium international cricket content following
partnerships with England Cricket, South Africa Cricket, New Zealand Cricket
and Pakistan Cricket.
The Tata IPL – which started its
2023 season last weekend – is the most established T20 league in the world,
attracting the best international short-format players, including Australia’s
top stars such as David Warner, Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazelwood.
