Indian Premier League - IPL Logos

 

Indian Premier League IPL Logo  

The Indian Premier League (also known as the "DLF Indian Premier League"), is a Twenty20 cricket competition created by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and sanctioned by the International Cricket Council. The first edition of the Indian Premier League started on 18 April 2008. The IPL now consists of 9 teams with the loss of the Kochi Tuskers who are not eligible for the 2012 season. The 2012 season will be the 5th season and will run from the 4th of April till the 27th of May.

  •  Bangalore Royal Challengers
  •  Chennai Super Kings
  •  Hyderabad Deccan Chargers
  •  Delhi DareDevils
  •  Kings XI Punjab
  •  Kolkata Knight Riders
  •  Rajasthan Royals
  •  Mumbai Indians
  •  Pune Warriors India

The IPL logo consists of three pieces

- Batsman hitting a attacking stroke to represent the game of cricket. The swish of the ball moving attempts to signify that the game is fast moving and more exciting.

- The pyramid logo of DLF Universal Limited.  DLF, is India's largest real estate developer based in New Delhi, India. DLF Universal secured exclusive rights to the Indian Premier League title sponsorship worth INR 200 crore (over US$50 million) for five years.

- The text "Indian Premier League" written in blue, probably to represent India's colours. 

Overall, I am quite disappointed in the logo. Firstly it lacks any color and originality. I think the logo could have been more colorful. Secondly, plugging in DLF's logo in the logo is a poor attempt to please the sponsor.

The logos of the participating teams are a lot more colorful and original and the IPL logo pales in comparison even more. Click the Read more link below for additional details on the logos.
