ABOUT EPL

Primarily focused on the development of the cricket, Everest Premier League (EPL) has been a standardizing tournament in the domestic circuit. Along with adding competitive match days to Nepal’s cricket calendar and providing a platform for young talents to find exposure, the highlight of EPL has been that it managed to tie a strong knot between the biggest of corporate houses and Nepali Cricket for the first time.

New Modalities of EPL for 2017

This year the modality of EPL has been altered to accommodate positive and impactful changes.
EPL 2017, scheduled for December, will now be based on cities as the name of the franchises.

City Based Ownership

The six cities represented are: Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhairawa, Biratnagar, Birgung and Pokhara. All games will be played in Kathmandu in round robin league format at the TU Int’l Cricket Ground in Kirtipur.

Auction Pool & Foreign Players

A pool of 15 players will fit into each team; 10 players through an auction, 1 local player through a talent hunt (conducted by the franchise itself in the local city) and 1 Marquee player (optional). Each franchise is obligated to feature 3 foreign players in its team to complete its quota of 15 players, which is a first for any domestic tournament in Nepal.

Prize Money

The tournament will have the highest winning amount in Nepali Cricket, a whopping 2.1 Million Rupees!

With the inclusion of foreign players, the tournament is bound to provide the exposure that our players need. National Sports Council (NSC) has proudly endorsed EPL and we look forward to work jointly to make EPL 2017 huge success”.
Jagat Tamata
National Coach & NSC Representative
“It was a great day for Nepali cricket when we launched the first franchise tournament in Nepal on 2014 after Nepal had just featured in the WT20. The support received from the fans, players, sponsors and media has been remarkable and it has been the fuel that gets us driving to accomplish further. With the experience of the first edition behind us, we are ready to take the tournament to the next level. The inclusion of the name of cities as teams, foreign players, IPL experienced managers and vendors will all add to the charm of this year’s EPL."
