"Until last season, the winners of the previous edition were awarded the hosting rights of the final of the next edition."
Kolkata, May 22 - The Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council has decided to stick with Bangalore as the venue for the June 1 final, thus ending all speculations about moving the summit clash to Mumbai, a top official said here Thursday.

Earlier, it was decided that the final could be shifted to Mumbai provided the venue got the requisite clearances from the fire services department as well as for the high decibel of noise. But with Bangalore getting the permissions, the final will be played there, a source in the IPL governing council told IANS.

Until last season, the winners of the previous edition were awarded the hosting rights of the final of the next edition.

As Mumbai Indians were the defending champions, it was the turn of the Wankhede Stadium to host the final. The June 1 summit clash was scheduled to be held at the Wankhede till the IPL governing council shifted it to Bangalore.
