Speculation Swirls: Will The IPL Head to the UAE For The Latter Half?


UAE Looms as Possible Host for 2nd leg of IPL 2024.

The fate of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 hangs in the balance as India prepares for its general elections.

While the first leg is confirmed to take place in India, the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) is exploring alternative venues for the second leg due to potential scheduling conflicts.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) emerges as a frontrunner, having successfully hosted the IPL in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BCCI officials reportedly visited Dubai to assess logistics and infrastructure.

A final decision hinges on the Election Commission of India’s official polling dates.

If the elections significantly overlap with the IPL schedule, a move to the UAE might become necessary to ensure smooth tournament operation.

This potential relocation would echo the 2014 IPL, which also saw its first half played in the UAE due to general elections.

Fans eagerly await a definitive answer as the BCCI navigates a potential venue shift for the remaining matches of the IPL 2024 season.
