After a successful season last year, TVS EPL has already begun preparations and partnerships to make this year even bigger. Big names from world cricket have already confirmed their presence at this year's TVS EPL and the franchises have started announcing their foreign players accordingly. The TVS EPL organizing team is working hard on making it an absolute class event by adding elements from IPL and international cricket. We will be sharing the proceedings in the coming press meets. For 2018, TVS EPL has been scheduled for December 8 to December 22. The number of days of the tournament has been increased to 15, so as to include less double headers and attract more audience. Moreover, the tournament spreads over 3 Saturdays, which we believe will make cricketing enthusiasts show up in large numbers. The ground and other logistics have been booked accordingly with Nepal Sports Council (NSC) and permissions regarding the same have already been acquired. Necessary documents have already been forwarded to the International Cricket Council (ICC) and we are hoping for approval in the near future. ICC has studied TVS EPL 2017's event report and has praised TVS EPL for putting up a clean, competitive and international-standard show last year. We hope for the same cooperation and support from ICC, NSC, Nepali Media and Nepali Cricket fans as we received last year. The 2017 edition was big with over 60,000 spectators and 2 million viewers worldwide, lets all work towards making TVS EPL 2018 even bigger!
"Firstly, I'd like to thank all my partners, sponsors, franchises, media and Nepali cricket fans for their continued support. Like last year, TVS EPL has been scheduled for December and the same dates and other necessary documents have been forwarded to ICC for approval. Having received positive feedback over last year's event, we are confident that ICC will sanction the 2018 event as well. We are trying our level best to increase investment and to incorporate international expertise, whether that is in ground operations or ground entertainment, to make the event bigger. TVS EPL 2018 will be a class-apart event and is sure to give the spectators and viewers a spectacular events, the likes of which they've only seen in international leagues."
