However, no title sponsorship of IPL 2021 has been found so far. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is still looking for title sponsorship. Vivo, the IPL’s main title sponsor, had asked the BCCI to suspend their contract for a year following tensions on the Indo-China border last June. As a result, Dream11 took over the opportunity that year in the absence of the original title sponsor, Vivo. But their contract was only for IPL 2020 and it expired on December 31. However, the BCCI is still hopeful of renewing its contract with Vivo.
