RCB IPL 2022 Full Schedule: Even though a title win continues to elude Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the Bengaluru-based franchise is one of the most followed teams in the tournament. RCB was founded in 2008 by United Spirits and named after the company’s liquor brand Royal Challenge. Since its inception, the team has played its home matches at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The brand value of Royal Challengers Bangalore was estimated to be ₹595 crores (US$79 million) in 2019, according to a survey conducted by Duff & Phelps.
Notably, RCB have never won the IPL but finished runners-up on three occasions between 2009 and 2016. Their lack of success over the years despite the presence of various notable players has earned them the tag of “underachievers”.
