Every team is set to play at four venues during the league stage. Out of the 56 league matches, Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata & Bengaluru will host 10 matches each while Ahmedabad and Delhi will host 8 matches each.

There will be a total of 11 doubleheaders where 6 teams will play three-afternoon matches and two teams will play two-afternoon matches. The afternoon games are held at 3:30 PM IST to start while the evening games will have a 7:30 PM IST start.

As of Sunday, the BCCI’s declared schedule for the first four weeks till May 6 during which 33 matches will be played and not a single game has been held in Kolkata during the period as there will be an eight-phase state assembly election in Bengal.

“The fixtures of the tournament have been planned in a way that every team will travel only three times during the league stage, thus decreasing commute and minimizing risk.

“The VIVO IPL this year at home will be played behind closed doors, to begin with, and a call on allowing spectators will be taken at a later stage of the tournament,” the statement read further.

The previous edition was played in the UAE between the pandemic but since then the COVID-19 situation has improved drastically in India.
