The previous edition of Everest Premier League consisted of teams from six franchises: Panchakanya Tez, Kantipur Gurkhas, Vishal Warriors, Sagarmatha Legends, Jagadamba Rhinos and Colors X-Factor. However, from this year EPL will be having teams based on cities, namely Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhairahawa, Biratnagar, Birjung and Pokhara, owned by top companies and business tycoons as stated by the man behind EPL, Mr. Aamir Akhtar.
