Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Friday unveiled its new logo. The redesigned logo with the majestic lion illustrates and brings alive RCB’s philosophy, a bold and fearless attitude of playing exciting cricket.


The Royal Challengers skipper Virat Kohli also came up with a witty tweet for the newly-launched logo while shedding more light on what it means to the franchise and its fans. However, the move of redesigning their logo wasn’t welcomed with open arms by the RCB fans. Most fans lashed out at the franchise on their ‘New logo’ tweet.

While some alleged that they have copied the logo, others hilariously trolled them and asked the franchise to change the players, not their logo. Amid the fans’ bashing, it was none other than their ex-chairman Vijay Mallya, who joined the bandwagon and took a humorous dig at RCB for their failure to clinch the IPL trophy yet.


“A new chapter begins,” tweeted RCB while sharing a clip of their journey since the inception of IPL. Mallya responded to the tweet, saying: “Great…but win the trophy!”

Mallya also retweeted another post from RCB in which he showered praise on captain Kohli. But, added again that the franchise needs to win the trophy.

“Virat came to RCB from the India U 19 squad. Virat has led India to great success and has been an outstanding performer himself. Leave it to him and give him the freedom. All RCB fans want that long overdue IPL trophy,” the 64-year-old wrote in reply to RCB’s tweet.



Mallya, in 2016, resigned as the director of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Since his resignation last year, Mallya has not been associated and involved in any operations of the franchise whatsoever.
