Chennaiyin FC launch fan-designed kits for 2022-23 season

Chennaiyin Football Club have become the first Indian Super League side to launch all three kits (home, away, and third) designed by fans following a contest conducted earlier this year.

Fans worldwide were invited to submit their designs and the story that inspired them. From close to fifty entries, Aynstine Thomas Jesudas (home and away kit) and Ramkumar B (third kit) are the ones whose kit renditions were chosen.

The blue home kit and the white away kit have the iconic Chennai Central imprinted at the bottom. At the heart of the city, Chennai Central is a reminder that “no matter where you go, you’ll come back home”. The third kit is more contemporary and yellow in colour, reflecting the energy of the city. 

Commenting on the deal, Vita Dani, Co-Owner Chennaiyin FC, said:

The kits being designed completely by the fans is a strong testament to the happiness and excitement we feel coming back to Chennai. All three kits reflect the emotions and pulse of the city from a fan’s view, and how can it get more accurate than that?

Chennaiyin FC midfielder Anirudh Thapa stated:

This year, we will reach the final and bring the trophy back and will play in the AFC cup. Thank you for always cheering for us. All of us who have missed playing at the Marina Arena and the atmosphere there. We are really excited to be back at the home field with you guys being there. We will be doing our best for the city and the team.

Co-owner of Chennaiyin FC Abhishek Bachchan also stated:

It’s great to be back in Chennai after a long and be among our extended family (our fans). Our stadium is one of the most intimidating places for opposite teams thanks to our fans. CFC is known for its fighting spirit and we look forward to the new season. We promise a great style of play and we look forward to your sports (fans). We have a new young and dynamic team and a new coach in Thomas.. and we look to deliver.

Rajesh Kharabanda, MD and CEO of NIVIA (Kit partner of Chennaiyin FC), further added: 

We have always believed in the fans first philosophy and we take immense pride in the fact that we are partners on this and want to thank you for all the support.

My eagerness, interest and inclination towards sports has continuously been forging and fortifying my personality as a writer. My sincerity to it is strengthened by the strong foundations of my musical attribute.
