For the fourth year running, Jamshedpur FC have decided to go with the same jersey they have always worn. Ever since they made their Indian Super League debut back in 2017, the jersey department has stood stagnant much to the fury of the fans. With the same likely to continue this season, the fans are finally raising their voices.
Owned and managed by Tata Steel, Jamshedpur FC entered India’s top-flight division in the 2017/18 season. They have never reached the play-offs. Their best finishes are 5th in their inaugural season and the following season. The second season saw them narrowly lose the qualifying spot to NorthEast United.
The Indian Super League will commence on November 19th this year. Jamshedpur FC will face FC Goa in the opener and it will be in the same jerseys that they have sewn into their skins for the past 4 years. Fans do not want the carbon copy saga to continue and have unleashed their fury out on all social media platforms.
Jamshedpur FC needs a new jersey
Clubs like Bengaluru FC, Kerala Blasters and Mumbai City FC launch new kits every season. With different concepts and designs that capture the aesthetics of the place, fans look forward to these days.
These clubs are known to have more faithful and stronger fanbases. The aura within these stadiums scale up the performance of the team to great heights ensuring larger success rates.
The official fan club of Jamshedpur FC, Red Miners, want a new jersey design. Nearly 2000 members from Bangalore all the way to Bhubaneshwar and Calcutta want the club to take their voices seriously. Football is for the fans. The power of the fans can be best explained with how the infamous European Super League was taken down.
The Men of Steel have always donned a red jersey with blue sleeves for home games and white with sky blue for the away games. Nivia are the official kit manufacturers with many of Tata’s allies sponsoring the kit. Unless the aim is a dubious Guinness record, the fans deserve a better jersey next season.
