Just like the Indian Premier League, whose title sponsors is Chinese mobile manufacturers Vivo, the title sponsor of the Karnataka Premier League (KPL) was Bangalore-based real estate developer, Mantri Developers.

The 7-team Twenty20 tournament went till September 12 with matches across Mysore, Bangalore and Hubli. KPL became the first domestic T20 league in the country to have a film actors team (Rockstars) among professional cricket sides.
