Mumbai Indians Is The Most Valuable IPL Franchise At INR 725 Crore: Reports

The Mumbai Indians franchise have beaten Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)  to emerge as the most valuable of the 10 IPL franchises with a brand value of a whopping INR 725 crore.

A report from brand valuation consultancy Brand Finance has gone viral on social media in which the brand value of the Indian Premier League touched $10.7 billion (approx INR 89,232 crore).

It has been reported that the IPL’s brand value has shot up to a magnificent 433% since its inception back in 2008, and it grew 28% from last year in IPL 2023 season.

The report alluded to the increased spectator numbers watching the IPL in 2023 to this huge jump in the IPL’s brand value. The acquisition of the IPL by Jio, which aired the IPL 2023 for free on their app, Jio Cinema, is certainly the biggest reason for this increased viewership in the IPL 2023.
