    Is there IPL 2014 Opening Ceremony ? Where is it going to happen ? NO IPL 7 Opening Ceremony Venue Details


    Yes you read it right. There is going to be No IPL 2014 Opening Ceremony. BCCI has taken the stance of making Cricket as preference and everything else takes back seat.

    One reason could be that IPL 7 Season kicks off in UAE and not in India due to General Elections.


    Instead of Mega IPL Opening Ceremony. There will be Gala Dinner in Abu Dhabi on April 15th where Shahrukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit are likely to do a Dance performance and will interact will the players. The captains will take oath.

    Some IPL teams have endorsed BCCI’s decision to scrap a full-fledged opening ceremony. “Most of us are okay with the idea. Officially, we have not been told anything so far about the opening ceremony. So, we are given to understand that any event on a big scale is not happening,” a team official confirmed. BCCI insisted that this move is not as a moneysaving measure. “If the opening ceremony had to be organised, saving money was the last priority as the UAE event is not costing us much,” a BCCI official said.

    Sources said IPL will pay the UAE board around $75,000 per match.

    There is no word yet on a IPL Closing Ceremony after the grand finale on June 1 at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
