VIVO to return as title sponsor for IPL 2021: Brijesh Patel

Patel also confirmed that crowd will be back for the upcoming IPL season.

After missing the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, Vivo is returning as the title sponsor for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. The decision was announced by Brijesh Patel, the IPL governing council chairman, during the IPL 2021 mini auction being held in Chennai. Dream 11 was roped in as the title sponsor for IPL 2020 after the Chinese mobile manufacturer pulled out of the tournament.

"Vivo is back, this edition to be announced as VIVO IPL 2021, welcome back Vivo," said Brijesh on Star Sports during the welcome speech of the IPL auction.

VIVO had pulled out as the title sponsor following a tension between India and China. The BCCI had then invited fresh bids for the title sponsor and Dream 11 bagged the contract for the UAE edition. However, with VIVO paying double of what Dream 11 paid to BCCI, it was reported that Vivo might return as the title sponsor.
