Vivo IPL 2021 Phase 2: IPL Franchise all set to travel to the UAE to finalize the logistics

Vivo IPL 2021: IPL franchise face another woe as UAE suspends flights from India until July 21.

Vivo IPL 2021: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and IPL Franchises has recently been hit by another roadblock as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government along with the General Civil Aviation Authority of the country has decided to extend the ban on all the connecting flights from India until 23:59 hrs of July 21.

A few IPL franchises were earlier planning to travel to the UAE to checkout and start their off-field preparations for the IPL 2021.

As per the reports, franchise owners and stakeholders were planning to fly to the UAE to finalize the logistics part of the league.

The league will resume on September 17th and the final is slated to be held on October 15, two days prior to the start of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

The franchises were concerned about the logistics part as the bulk booking will get tricky once all the restrictions will be lifted. Moreover, the Dubai Expo 2021 will bring additional challenges to find bookings for the franchises.

“Unlike last year, bulk bookings won’t be as easy this year as you will have people travelling into the country and that makes the work around bio-bubbles all the more critical,” a franchise official was quoted by ANI as saying.

To fly to the UAE now, the franchises will have to seek special permission from the BCCI as well as the government of the UAE.
