The Chinese company Vivo company suspended this year’s deal with BCCI after the tension flared up between India and China at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) which caused the death of at least 20 Indian soldiers. Subsequently, India had banned a number of Chinese applications in India, including the popular Tiktok.

Amid all this, fans had also claimed to boycott IPL because of the Chinese sponsorship. Then Vivo decided to take down the sponsorship of the 13th edition of the league.

Vivo won the IPL title sponsorship rights for five years from 2018 to 2022 for a whopping sum of Rs 2190 crore, approximately Rs 440 crore per annum. The title sponsors play a huge role in generating revenues, half of which is shared equally by the eight.

The BCCI is planning to generate approx INR 300 crore to lessen the deficit caused by Vivo exit. So, it is a challenging task for the board to get a sponsor to par with the Chinese company in such a short period.
