TCM Platform to craft Tata IPL 2022 closing ceremony; AR Rahman and Ranveer Singh to perform

The closing ceremony will take place at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on 29 May.

Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed TCM Platform as the agency that will conceptualise and execute the Tata IPL 2022 closing ceremony at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on 29 May. The closing ceremony of the IPL makes a comeback after a gap of four years.

AR Rahman, Ranveer Singh, singers and over 500 supporting dancers and cast will be a part of the ceremony. The entire field of play will be used for the ceremony and it will be broadcast from 6.30 p.m on 29 May.

“It is indeed an honour and a privilege to be given this mandate in this very special year," stated TCM Platform director Chanda Singh. "Cricket is deeply embedded in the fabric of our nation and creatively we bring the celebration of 75 years of India’s independence and the history of our cricketing achievements together. This is also the year that two new teams have joined the league – truly representative of the diversity of the nation with a singular passion for cricket.”

“We have mapped every second of our thirty minutes event to entertain, enthrall,  delight and pay tribute to the country, to the game that we are so passionate about and to the legends that define its history,” said project lead of the ceremony Ria Agnihotri.

Ranveer Singh will be the headliner of a high-impact performance that captures the flavour of the 10 playing teams and the cities that make up the league.  The sequence will be choreographed by Shiamak Davar and 300 folk dancers from across India will join his dance troupe to give a montage of the rich texture of our nation, said the statement.

Oscar winner and music composer AR Rahman will pay tribute to 75 years of legends and cricketing history. “For the first time we will use broadcast Augmented Reality to bring alive the different eras of cricket. Along with AR Rahman, this will be a befitting homage to the 15 years of IPL and to game that has given us so much” – said the content director of the ceremony Arati Singh.

The BCCI had invited event and entertainment companies and the mandate was awarded after a multi-level screening and selection process by a committee. “TCM Platform won the mandate with a strong concept, backed by superb talent choices and a reputation for perfection in execution. We thank The BCCI for this opportunity and we hope to make this a benchmark event in this very special year for our nation,” said TCM Platform MD Lokesh Sharma.

TCM Platform is a JV venture between Twenty First Century Media, XP&D and the Zoo Media Network.  The new-age company said that it champions the narrative of offline sportainment and online digital engagement.
