You won't believe which company is considering bidding for IPL title sponsorship?

Notably, the slot became vacant after the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer 'Vivo' decided to step back from it.

According to official sources, Yog-guru, Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved is considering to bid for the title sponsorship of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). 

Notably, the slot became vacant after the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer 'Vivo' decided to step back from it. 

This move, would, however, help the Haridwar-based firm access a global marketing platform, as Patanjali is focusing on exports for its Ayurveda-based FMCG products. 

Confirming the development, Patanjali spokesperson S K Tijarawala told the news agency: "We are considering this."

"This is for Vocal For Local and making one Indian brand as global, this is the right platform. We are considering into that perspective,” he said.

Tijarawala further added, "We have to take a final decision, whether we would take it or not".

According to him, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is coming with the expression of interest on Monday and it has to submit its proposal by August 14.

Last week, BCCI and Vivo decided to suspend their partnership for the 2020 IPL beginning on September 19, in the UAE, amid tumult to boycott Chinese products in the wake of the China-India border stand-off.

The title sponsorship is a significant part of the IPL’s commercial revenue, half of which is shared equally by the franchises.

Vivo won the IPL title sponsorship rights for five years from 2018 to 2022 for a reported sum of Rs 2,190 crore, approximately Rs 440 crore per annum.

The Haridwar-based Patanjali group has an estimated turnover of around Rs 10,500 crores. It had acquired debt-ridden Ruchi Soya in a corporate insolvency resolution process for around Rs 4,350 crore after competing with Adani Group.

Patanjali Ayurved had reported a revenue of Rs 8,329 crore in FY 2018-19. However overall the group’s turnover was much higher as Patanjali Ayurved consists of mainly its FMCG business and its Ayurvedic medicines.
