Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has permanently pulled out as title sponsors of the Indian Premier League.

The BCCI has confirmed that Vivo will not be the title sponsor of IPL 2020. There is no clarity if Vivo will return as title sponsors for next 2 yrs.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo had bagged the title sponsorship by signing a five-year contract (2017-22). It has now opted out as the title sponsor of the 2020 IPL season after a disagreement with India’s cricket board over sponsorship fee and in response to growing opposition to a Chinese brand backing the tournament following the Galwan stand-off. The cricket board issued a statement in this regard. Vivo has said that it is just a pause in the partnership. However, the status of the contract for the next edition of the IPL and beyond is uncertain.
