The first VIVO IPL Fan Park for the 2018 season will be held on May 27 in Muzaffarpur, Nagpur, Kota and Managaluru.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Mallapurkar (BCCI representative) and Mohammed Sirajuddin (MPL chairman) said each venue will broadcast all the LIVE action of the IPL on giant TV screens, creating a stadium-like feel for fans practically in their backyards.

Entry will be free and, furthermore, there will be music and multiple stalls for merchandise, food, beverages and other activations by IPL’s official sponsors, to add to the electric atmosphere.

Those visiting the Fan Park will be eligible for a lucky prize including exclusive IPL merchandise and a cool smartphone from VIVO.

Last season saw a massive turnout of 3,00,000 enthusiasts for the IPL live at the Fan Parks.

This year the initiative is expected to generate a greater turnout.

Spread across 19 states and covering 36 cities, the VIVO IPL Fan Park 2018 looks to reach out to fans and cover regions with limited options of entertainment.

While the League embarks upon its 11th season, the Fan Parks will engage fans from across the country.

From Kulu, the northernmost part, to Tirunelveli, the southernmost part, and spreading its wings towards Agartala in the east to Rajkot in the west, the Fan Parks will reach out to cricket lovers from the length and breadth of India.
