I guess once the bids submitted, they want to do one to one negotiations. Let’s see how it unfolds”, said one of the bidder who had recently participated in the BCCI tender.

The ITT is for the Indian market only, with up to six packages available across TV only, digital only or a combination of both.

  • For the first time ever, men’s and women’s rights will be sold separately.
  • Prospective partners can bid for 16 Men’s events (over 8 years) and six Women’s events (over 4 years), totalling 362* and 103* matches respectively.
  • Interested parties will be required to submit a bid for the first four years of men’s events. However, they also have the option of bidding for an eight-year partnership.

ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said: International cricket consistently attracts huge audiences and that is driving significant interest from broadcasters for ICC events.

“There has been significant growth in interest in women’s cricket over the last five years and we have made a long-term strategic commitment to accelerate that growth and unbundling the rights for our women’s events will play a huge role in that. We are looking for a broadcast partner who is excited by the role they will play in growing the women’s game and ensuring more fans than ever before can enjoy it.”

How the Interested Parties can BID for the RIGHTS?

The ITT will be released on 20 June, and interested parties need to email iccmediarights2024-2031@icc-cricket.com to access the tender documents.

A decision will be made by the ICC Board in September 2022. The ITTs for additional markets will be released following that.
