Defending champions Mumbai Indians start with the smallest purse (2.1 crore) among the five teams in the Women’s Premier League 2024 auction.

Which auction rules apply to the Women’s Premier League in 2024?

For all five teams, these are the requirements for entering in Women’s Premier League 2024 Auction:

  • Each team is given a purse worth INR 12 crore, which they must strategically employ to make player acquisitions while staying under their financial constraints.
  • There is a minimum of 15 players and a maximum of 18 players that any side can sign. This guarantees fair play and stops clubs from stockpiling talent.
  • Up to seven foreign players, including at least one from an Associate nation, may be added by teams. This fosters variety and motivates groups to look into global talent.
  • This gives the auction process a financial management component.
  • Only five players from abroad can be selected for a team’s starting lineup out of a roster consisting of seven players. The need for diversity and inclusivity in the IPL is further highlighted by the requirement for one foreign player to be from an Associate nation.

When does Women’s Premier League 2024 begin?

Each team in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) auction has a spending limit of Rs. 13.5 crore. The Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 tournament is reportedly scheduled for February and March the following year.
