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.
