This has never happened before to which IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said, “It would be unfair to say it was my idea. All the members sat together and decided to have separate opening ceremonies across all the host cities to give the fans an opportunity to witness the opening of the 10th edition of the IPL live.”

"The theme of the ceremonies would be the culture and the tradition of the host cities and will continue to have performances from Bollywood stars. “The various segments of the ceremony will be on our culture, the culture and tradition of the host cities as also highlighting the high points from the last nine editions of the tournament. We will also have performances from Bollywood stars, spirit of cricket signing etc” Shukla added.
