The Indian Premier League is about to kick off next month and the most entertaining cricket team Royal Challengers Bangalore has gone blank on every social media platform. The netizens are wondering what could have happened. Is the franchise looking to change its name? Do we have new ownership?
RCB has gone blank
Virat Kohli’s side may have a new name and logo for the 13th edition of the IPL. The official Twitter handle of RCB, on Wednesday, removed its display picture and cover picture while the name was changed to ‘Royal Challengers’.
A similar thing was done on their Instagram and Facebook accounts which hints at a possible announcement of a new name along with a new logo.
It is true that RCB has never won an IPL trophy but this time with better staff and a sorted out squad, the Kohli and company could turn the table. The fans are hoping that RCB will end the wait this season and bring home the ultimate trophy.
RCB sign Muthoot Fincorp Ltd
Meanwhile, RCB on Tuesday announced a three-year partnership with Muthoot Fincorp Ltd, a part of the Muthoot Pappachan Group. The combination of title sponsor for the RCB team includes the heavily valued “jersey-front” logo position, which will be prominent on the playing and training jersey.
“We, at Royal Challengers Bangalore are pleased to be associating with Muthoot Fincorp Ltd, Muthoot Blue, as our title sponsor, as they bring passion and core values that we as a brand believe in. We are positive that both Royal Challengers and Muthoot Fincorp Ltd, Muthoot Blue, will be able to channelize this collaboration brilliantly,” said Sanjeev Churiwala RCB Chairman.
RCB twitter account has 3.6 million followers and the recent developments have kept the fans wondering. Netizens are asking the franchise about going totally blank.
