The Chinese mobile giant VIVO has supposedly also exited as Title sponsor of Indian Pro Kabbadi League after exiting from the 13th IPL-Indian Premier League.
In 2017, VIVO had signed a 5 year deal with the co-owners and official broadcasters – Star India, which was valued around Indian Rupees 3 Billion.
According to reports VIVO has decided to withdraw due to the China-India Border tension and the negative publicity recently received especially on the social media. The reaction has been to the extent of public being asked tp boycott Chinese products.
Due to prevailing weak econimic conditions caused due to coronavirus, both IPL and PKL are facing problems with new title sponsorship.
