Earlier, satellite cities used to host IPL matches, and a similar arrangement was expected due to the tournament's close proximity to the Lok Sabha elections.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday released the complete fixture for the league stage of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 season.

Unlike in the previous seasons, all the league matches will be held in the eight home venues of the eight franchises in the home-away fixtures. Earlier, satellite cities used to host matches, and a similar arrangement was expected due to the tournament's close proximity to the Lok Sabha elections.

In a media release, the BCCI said that "each of the eight franchises will play their 7 home games at their respective venues".

The Board thanks the Election Commission of India, local police authorities at each venue for their cooperation. This has ensured that the league sticks to the home and away format.

The schedule has been made in a manner to balance the afternoon matches/weekend matches and travel. 

Among the league matches, there are 12 afternoon starts (4 pm matches) on the weekends. Also, the IPL operations team has ensured that no team plays their home matches at the alternate venues as the general elections will be held in seven phases from April 12 to May 19.

"The biggest challenge was to ensure that KKR gets to play all their matches at the Eden Gardens as West Bengal is the only state which is going to polls on all seven dates. However with Calcutta and adjoining areas going to polls on May 19, we have been able to sort the issues with help of the government and local police authorities," a senior BCCI official said.

Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Chennai in the IPL opener, which will begin on March 23.

Earlier, the BCCI announced the schedule of the first 17 matches that will be played during the two-week period from March 23 to April 5 across the eight home venues of the respective franchises.

But, the venues for the playoffs, including the final, are set to be released later.
