Online Ticket Booking for TNPL T20 Cricket League Matches: Bookmyshow website.

You can also buy tickets for TNPL T20 matches at the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) Office at Chepauk stadium.

The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) – T20 Cricket Tournament is set to happen from this Wednesday, Aug. 24 to Sept. 18, 2016. Here is the full schedule, franchise/team details, etc. Basically, eight teams named after different cities in TN will play 28 T20 cricket league matches and three deciding matches. This tournament seems to be modeled after the IPL.

I guess the opening ceremony should be on Wednesday, Aug. 24., 2016 from 6 P.M. at Chepauk Stadium – Chennai, just before the start of the first match between Chepauk Super Gillies and Albert Tuti Patriots. Refer to the below tweet by Singer Karthik who is to perform along with Dhanush, Madhavan, Andrea Jeremiah, Dhansika, Amy Jackson and others in the TNPL opening ceremony –


So, book the tickets for the first match to start from 6.30 P.M. and go to the stadium (at least) one-hour before that to enjoy some song/dance performances too 😉 The ticket price as per bookmyshow website is Rs. 50 for the first match. You can buy tickets for the match (and the opening ceremony) from the above link.

Here is a video showing the Highlights from the Cultural programs during the Opening Ceremony on the first day:
