The mobile manufacturing company Vivo will be the official sponsor of the IPL 2021. Vivo has been aggressively looking for exiting the partnership worth INR 440 Crores, however, the company failed to find any takers at such a huge price point.

Vivo was roped in by BCCI for the title sponsorship of the Indian Premier League back in 2018. According to the sources, Vivo will keep grinding to find any takers at the same price in the market until the 11th hour for the title sponsorship of IPL.
