The IPL 2020 was concluded successfully on Tuesday after MI clinched their fifth title beating Delhi Capitals in the final. Amid the COVID-19 outburst, the sporting events had either been canceled or postponed and IPL was one of them.

But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has eventually been able to conduct the tournament. The IPL 2020 saw a rise of 28% viewrship.

IPL chairman Brijesh Patel said, “IPL has always endeavoured to provide a world-class sports event for its fans.”

“With Dream11 coming on board as the title sponsor for IPL 2020, we are happy to see a digital sports brand like Dream11 increasing fan engagement through fantasy sport.”

“It’s equally heartening to see how Dream11 has integrated its users in all Dream11 IPL match activations. The match countdown, Dream11 Champion Fans wall and the virtual guest box have all been brought about to bring the fans to the forefront,” he added.

Vikrant Mudaliar, chief marketing officer at Dream11, said, “IPL is the biggest sports event in India that witnesses extremely high fan fervour, and we are happy to see similar engagement on Dream11.”

“Fantasy sports has increasingly become integral to fan engagement with every IPL. Sports fans are at the centre of everything we do, and we have integrated our users in all Dream11 IPL match activations.”
