2016 Premier Badminton League (also known as Star Sports Premier Badminton League 2016 for sponsorship reasons) was the second edition of the Premier Badminton League. The league was formerly known as the Indian Badminton League.[1] The season was held from 2–17 January 2016. The opening ceremony was held in Mumbai and the finals in Delhi.[2] Delhi Dashers (formerly Delhi Acers) became the champions after beating Mumbai Rockets in the final.

The second edition was slated to be held in October 2014. However, due to International schedule, the tournament was rescheduled to January 2015.[3] It was later shifted to 2016 due to conflict between Sporty Solutionz and BAI. The second session was renamed from the Indian Badminton League to the Premier Badminton League.[4] Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is the brand ambassador of the league.[5][6][7]
