The (IPL) Indian Premier League is a professional franchise-based T20 cricket league in India, played during April-May every year by franchise teams, representing different Indian cities. The league was founded in 2007 by the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI). The IPL ranks sixth amongst all sports leagues and is the most-attended cricket league in the world. In 2010, it became the first sporting contest in the world to be broadcasted live on YouTube in 2010. In 2008, a consortium consisting of India's Sony Entertainment Television (Set Max) network and Singapore-based World Sports Group acquired the global broadcasting rights of the Indian Premier League. The IPL Governing Council manages the tournament.
