VIVO Pulls Out as Title Sponsor

Vivo’s sponsorship deal with the BCCI, worth Rs 440 crore per year, was suspended in the 2020 season due to the India-China border standoff.

Where Dream11 had been the IPL title sponsor for the 2020 edition, winning the rights for Rs 222 crore. The matches were played in the UAE in view of the pandemic.

The Governing Council has approved the Chinese handset company’s request to transfer the title rights to Tata, one of the biggest corporates of the country. Vivo has a couple of years left in its sponsorship deal with the league and during this period, Tata will remain the main sponsor. The league will now be called Tata IPL.

The news was confirmed to this website by a couple of BCCI officials who attended the GC. “There was a request from Vivo to exit the IPL sponsorship deal and the GC has approved it,” one official told Cricbuzz.

“The BCCI will continue to earn the same fee for the title rights.” The original five-year deal was up to the 2020 season and it got extended till 2023 because of the one-year break and following Tuesday’s GC decision, the Tata Group will step in and remain the title sponsor for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
