The 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will kickstart with a blockbuster clash between the defending champions Gujarat Titans and the four-time winners Chennai Super Kings in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium later today.

The first game of the IPL season will also see the return of the IPL Fan Parks after a gap of three years as cricket lovers will witness the first fan park of the season in Madurai.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) started the concept in 2015 and IPL 2023 will see a comeback of the same.

The IPL Fan Parks will be spread across 45 cities – Surat, Madurai, Kota, Hubli, and Dehradun to name a few – and over 20 States and 2 Union Territories this season. It promises to offer an exciting and entertaining community-viewing experience for cricket fans across various regions of the country. Every weekend – throughout the duration of the tournament – there will be five fan parks.

The fans will get the opportunity to witness the IPL 2023 Final, to be played on May 28, 2023, from as many as five Fan Parks across Jammu, Jamshedpur, Palakkad, Jorhat, and Bhopal.
