Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have changed their logo ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 season. The players greeted the new logo on Valentine's Day with a lot of excitement. However, rival fans made a mockery of the new club crest. RCB, despite their star players and fan base, are one of the only three teams to not lift an IPL title so far.

New Decade, New RCB, and this is our new logo #PlayBold #NewDecadeNewRCB pic.twitter.com/bdf1kvXYUl
RCB took everyone by surprise by deleting their posts and their profile pictures. The Bangalore-based franchise stated that they would make a huge announcement on Friday, hinting at ‘new decade, new RCB.’ RCB announced their new logo on all their social media handles days after officially announcing a three-year deal with Muthoot Fincorp Ltd ahead of the IPL 2020. As per the deal, there will be a 'jersey-front' logo placed prominently on the playing and training jersey.
RCB’s move to change their logo did not go down well amongst fans. Twitterati heavily trolled the Virat Kohli-led franchise. They hinted that RCB’s barren run in the competition will continue when IPL 2020 kicks off.
RCB would hope that the ‘new look’ side can mount a title challenge in IPL 2020 and break their miserable run of form in the competition.
