The IPL has a huge viewership base. The first 2 weeks of the VIVO IPL 2019 tournament saw 345 million viewers tuning in from across the country. These viewership numbers are a goldmine for advertisers and sponsors.

IPL has numerous sponsors and sponsors for their tournament and even the IPL teams have their own set of advertisers.
