IPL 2020 auction to be held on December 19 in Kolkata

Vivo IPL Auction 2019

This 2020 IPL auction will be the last small auction before the mega auctions of 2021 when the franchises have been disbanded, and fresh squads will be assembled. The trading window would normally close on November 13th, 2019.

As a change, this year the auction will take place in Kolkata instead of Bengaluru. The eight franchises have all been allocated ₹82 crores each, along with a supplemental purse of ₹3 crores.
