GNLU Center for Sports Law (GCSL) - Working Papers Series: Call for Papers
The world of sports has undergone a major transformation in recent times. The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a manifestation of the modern sport, where sponsors and broadcasters are as crucial as viewers and the players themselves. The English Premier League (EPL), one of the most popular football events, has been a pioneer in successfully blending the interests of corporate and sports-lovers alike.
In nearly two decades of its existence, the EPL has sustained corporate interest and viewer ship, while never compromising with the standards of the game. Marred by controversies and concerns over declining viewer ship, the IPL too must set its house in order to establish itself at par with the leading club and franchise events of the world.
