Gujarat Titans is a young professional cricket club, which became a member of the Indian Premier League in 2022, as a result of a Governing Council of the IPL tender, held in 2021.

Meaning and history

The British brought cricket to India back in the 18th century. First, they played it themselves (the first cricket club in Calcutta appeared in 1792), and then the locals became interested in the exotic game. The Parsis (Zoroastrians in South Asia of Iranian origin) liked the game, followed by Hindus and Muslims.

The cricket revolution in India took place in 2008 when sportsman Lalit Modi launched the Indian Premier League. He based it on the commercial format of Twenty20 cricket, which limits match duration to three hours and is maximized for TV broadcasts.

Modi held an auction among India’s business elite, selling them the rights to include 8 clubs in the league for a total of $723 million. Bollywood king Shahrukh Khan even invested in one of the franchises. Following that, Modi convinced Sony to pay 900 million for the broadcast rights. And offered the world’s best players the best facilities to move in.

Thus, one of the world’s most commercially attractive leagues was born. Now only the NFL is more expensive than the IPL – just over $10 billion (about the same as the MLB) versus $16 billion.

In 2021, the IPL expanded from eight to ten teams, with CVC Capital buying Gujarat Titans for around $750 million and entrepreneur Sanjeev Goenka buying Lucknow Super Giants for around $950 million.

CVC Capital Partners is a management company founded in 1981 that specializes in direct investments through specialized funds and has invested heavily in European and Asian markets. They are headquartered in Luxembourg and made the decision to invest in soccer some time ago, before that, the fund had a successful track record of investing in other sports around the world. Today, however, CVC Capital’s focus has shifted to cricket.
