Duff & Phelps 2017 Report on Indian Premier League Brand Values-The Decade Edition

Duff & Phelps has published the fourth edition of our annual study of brand values in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The IPL has emerged as the premier sporting event in India with a global viewership and a fan following unmatched by any other cricketing league. Within a short span of just 10 years, the IPL has morphed into a media beast that could soon rival the decades old major sporting events across the world. No one could have predicted that IPL would become such a huge hit when it was first conceptualized in 2007 and when the franchises were first awarded to a group of corporates, individuals and celebrities.

Key Findings:

  • Overall value of IPL business up by 26% to USD 5.3 billion from USD 4.2 billion last year, boosted by renewed VIVO title sponsorship deal at INR 2,200 crores
  • Mumbai Indians retain top position in the rankings and become the first IPL franchisee with over USD 100 million in brand value

  • Brand values of all the franchisees increased on average by 34% compared to last year

  • Social media is fueling the growth in IPL making it one of the fastest growing sports leagues on Twitter with 4.9 million followers and adding over 1.8 million fans on Facebook during the most recent season
