ATN brings Sri Lanka Premier League coverage to Canada

The exclusive Canadian broadcast rights for the Sri Lanka Premier League have been secured by Asian Television Network International Limited (ATN).

ATN has secured the Canadian rights for a period of seven years for all forms of broadcast from Somerset Entertainment Ventures, Marketing Rights Partners of the SLPL Cricket League.

The inaugural edition of the Sri Lankan premier league will be played from 11-31 August in Sri Lanka. The tournament features seven provincial teams at two venues: R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo and the Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy.

Recently the Sri Lanka Cricket board auctioned the seven teams for over $30 million and all seven franchises were bought by Indian Business Enterprises. Some of the franchise owners include Wadhawan Holdings Private Limited, Number One Sports Consulting Private Limited, Pearl Overseas Limited, Success Sports Private Limited and Indian Cricket Dundee Limited.

"This is an exciting new opportunity to see top talent in premier league play. We are delighted to be able to bring this new league to Canadian fans," said Dr. Shan Chandrasekar, ATN's President and CEO.
