New Delhi, Jan 11: The chairman of Indian Premier League (IPL), Brijesh Patel told the media that Tata Group will be replacing Chinese mobile manufacturer Vivo as the title sponsor of the cricket league from this year.
“Yes, Tata group is coming in as IPL title sponsor,” said Patel addressing the media.
The decision was taken during IPL’s governing council meeting on Tuesday.
Notably, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Vivo had suspended their ties for IPL 2020 after the border tensions between India and China and the rising anti-China sentiment in India.
However, Vivo was seen as the Cricket tournament’s title sponsor again in 2021. Vivo had a contract of Rs 2,200 crore for IPL title sponsorship rights from 2018-2022.
