IPL 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore To Get A New Name And Logo

RCB social media activity
On Tuesday, RCB removed pictures from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts. Also, it changed the name to Royal Challengers. The Hindustan Times reported that RCB could come up with a new name and logo and an announcement regarding the same could be made on February 16.
Reason for change of name
According to reports, a faction of RCB fans wants to change Bangalore as it is the old name of Silicon Valley. After some discussions, the RCB agreed to change Bangalore to Bengaluru before the start of IPL 2020.
RCB in IPL
By far, RCB has been the most favoured team in IPL due to a star-studded line-up that includes Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers but it has yet to receive its first IPL trophy. Its performance has been super but it failed to meet expectations of its fans in the last 12 IPL seasons. For IPL 2020, RCB has associated with Muthoot Corp as its title sponsor.
