IPL 2021 Auction Date, Schedule, Venue, Teams List, Players List for all IPL Teams

IPL 2021 is still a few months away. However, there is an air of buzz around the tournament as the IPL governing council confirmed the IPL auction date with the event scheduled to be held on February 18 in Chennai.

 

IPL 2021 Auction Details: Date and Venue

In the IPL governing council virtual meeting held on January 4, a lot was discussed around the upcoming IPL season. While the 2021 IPL auction date was speculated around the second week of February, it has now been confirmed as February 18. It will be a mini-auction as there will be no new teams for the upcoming season as BCCI plans to potentially add two more teams in IPL 2022.

Along with the IPL 2021 auction date, the venue for the event was finalized in Chennai. The mini-auction will take place immediately after the conclusion of the second Test between India and England on February 17 in Chennai. It will be for the first time that an IPL auction will be held in Chennai. Historically, the venue for the IPL auctions has been Bengaluru barring the 2020 IPL auction which was conducted in Kolkata for the very first time.
