In the first 3 seasons of BPL, they arranged the opening ceremony. There was no opening ceremony for the 4th, 5th and 6th season of BPL before the tournament.
The 4th and 5th seasons were devoid of the opening ceremony due to a shortage of time and helping the flood-affected people in the country by donating the money respectively.
The 11th General Election of Bangladesh was held on 30th December 2018. Due to this reason, there was little time for the BCB to arrange an opening ceremony for the 6th season also.
James and Momtaz from Bangladesh performed on this show. Indian celebrities like Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sonu Nigam and Kailash Kher also performed here.
