The 2021 season of the IPL will be played in India from 9 April 2021 to 30 May 2021 as per the IPL match list. There will be six IPL 2021 venues. As Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Mohali missed out on IPL matches, the organizers decided against having a single home game in 2021.
The initial phase of IPL 2021 will happen behind closed doors. BCCI will make a call on the spectators in the later phase. Besides, under this unique schedule, the eight teams will have to take only three flights.
Narendra Modi Stadium
The newly rebuilt Narendra Modi Stadium will host four league matches and the IPL 2021 playoffs. This stadium is the world’s largest cricketing venue, with a capacity of 1,32,000 spectators. Recently, India and England played seven international matches at this stadium.
The Wankhede Stadium is the home of the two-time defending champions Mumbai Indians. Unfortunately, the fans will not witness a sea of blue in Mumbai this year. Nevertheless, the matches on the flat track in Mumbai promise to entertain the fans.
Eden Gardens is the base of the two-time IPL winners Kolkata Knight Riders. This venue is one of the oldest cricket stadiums in history. Earlier, it could host over 80,000 fans, but after renovations, the seating capacity has come down to 66,000. Eden Gardens has hosted the IPL Final twice.
Arun Jaitley Stadium
The Arun Jaitley Stadium is the home venue of the Delhi Capitals. DDCA has clarified the ground’s name is still the Feroze Shah Kotla Ground. This venue has a capacity of close to 42,000. It has hosted IPL matches since 2008.
M Chinnaswamy Stadium
M Chinnaswamy Stadium is famous for its electric atmosphere for the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s home matches. This venue was the world’s first cricket stadium to use solar panels to generate electricity required for a bulk of things at the venue. Bengaluru has played host to the IPL Finals in 2014 and 2016.
MA Chidambaram Stadium
The Chennai Super Kings have fondly named the MA Chidambaram Stadium as ‘Anbu Den.’ The English translation of the Tamil word is ‘Den of Love.’ The I, J, and K stands of this ground were locked for spectators since 2015, but the stands were finally opened in March 2020.
