The (IPL 2021) is set to kickstart from April 9 with defending champions taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. 

A total of 56 matches will be played with 11 double-headers across the months of April and May. The final will be played at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium Ahmedabad on May 30th.

The eight teams will play across six venues - Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, New Delhi, and Kolkata -- with each side playing in four venues out of the decided ones. There will be no home advantage as none of the teams will be playing in their home stadiums.

Amid concerns related to Covid-19 pandemic, spectators will not be allowed in the first half of the tournament. The IPL Governing Council has said in a statement that a call on allowing spectators inside stadiums will be taken at a later stage of the tournament.

The IPL has also issued Standard operating Procedures (SoP) under which the cricketers who played the India-England limited-overs series were eligible for a bubble-to-bubble transfer instead of undergoing quarantine, while there is no mandatory vaccination for any of the players or staff.

The auction took place on February 18. The full schedule was announced on March 7.
