Phase 1 KPL

A grand opening ceremony managed by Phase 1 Events & Entertainments Pvt Ltd kickstarted the 4th edition of Karnataka Premier League at Hubli on September 3, 2015. The Twenty20 cricket league established by Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) is modeled along the lines of IPL. KPL takes the gentleman's game to 2-tier cities with 7 teams representing various districts of the state and one all star team. The ongoing 17 day tournament is being played at Hubli and Mysore.

The first two editions of KPL were also managed by Phase 1. This year, the crowd at Rajanagar Stadium were awed by a stunning light, sound and laser show, followed by multi-shot fireworks. The captains of the 8 teams were also seen releasing sky lanterns at the event.

With a brief to conceptualize, plan and execute an innovative opening ceremony , Phase 1 has managed to present the people of Hubli with a show that they have never witnessed before. Apart from the spectacular opening ceremony, Phase 1 has also arranged an entertainment zone at the venues, where a DJ and emcee would keep the crowds entertained throughout the season. The event management team did not face any major challenges at the opening ceremony, as several dry runs were executed prior to the show.

The ceremony was conducted in two parts. Between the first and second match of the season, the captains of the 8 teams assembled on the ground with their flag bearers and took their oaths. This was presided over by tournament officials and the chief guest Dinesh Gundu Rao, Hon. Minister of State for Food and Civil Supplies. Later the tournament was officially launched by releasing hundreds of balloons. The second part of the opening show was an entertainment session held after the presentation ceremony of the second match. Award winning singer Sinchan Dixit and the cast of an upcoming Kannada movie gave dance and musical performances on the ground. However, the highlight of the ceremony was the stunning light, sound and laser show, followed by fireworks.

Speaking about the association with KPL, Oum Pradutt, Founder and MD, Phase 1 Events and Experiences, said; "Our relationship with KPL goes back many years, since its inception. We managed the first two seasons and are proud to be back to execute the 4th season.  One of our main objectives for this year is to be more closely associated with sports initiatives and help in promoting them within India. The energy of the each of the matches has been simply electric and we hope to execute more of such large-format events going further. Mr. Brijesh Patel, Hon. Secretary of KSCA, who has been been a constant supporter of Phase 1 and has been instrumental in the success of KPL. One of the highlights of KPL from the 1st season has been the anthem which was  conceptualized by Phase 1 and created by Grammy award winning music composer Ricky Kej.
