The winning bidders can choose from the following names:
The two teams we have decided would be a Pakistan community based team and another from the Indian community. We have given them a whole choice of names in the bidding document which they can select. The successful bidder can also have the choice of name.
The franchise fees have now been doubled and we are hoping to get $1.2 million per team as last year it was only $400,000 per year. This will take the league to a higher level as it will also give immediate financial returns to all the six team owners who have only paid at the rate of $400,000 per year for the next ten years.
Salman Iqbal, President, and Chairman of ARY, owner of Karachi Kings and partner of T10 league says;
The stage is now set for us to take off onto the next level by adding two new teams. We are looking to complete the process as early as possible so that we can scale up the preparations this year.
