Kerala has produced some of the finest footballers in the country. The state has an undying craze and passion towards Football, a phenomenon that is rarely seen in the remaining parts of India, a country where cricket is the most watched and followed sport.

Formed on 24th May 2014, Kerala Blasters FC is one of the ten teams that is a part of the Indian Super League (ISL) since its inception, with its Home ground at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kaloor, Kochi. Founded on the three strong pillars: Collectivism, Sportsmanship and Inclusivity, the team owners include the industrialist, Mr. Nimmagadda Prasad, Indian film stars, Chiranjeevi as well as Allu Arvind, an Indian Film Producer, with Mr. Viren D’Silva at the helm as CEO. Over a period of 5 years, the club has grown to become the largest fan followed football club in the country and the 5th largest fan followed club in Asia with a total following of 4 Million fans on social media combining Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. It is also noteworthy that the club’s fanbase is higher than some of the IPL clubs in the country.

With an estimated contribution of 45% to the total ISL viewership and KBFC matches consistently among the top 10 most watched programmes in Kerala, the club is a true beacon of growing football in India. Kerala Blasters are also among the top 10 Non-European Clubs with the highest average stadium attendees, with an average attendance of approx. 40000 fans during the 5 years of the ISL. Being the award winner of the “Best ISL pitch of the year” in 2018, the club also prides in having one of the best footballing facilities in India.

Fans, at the heart of all initiatives, the club has launched KBFC Tribes, a digital fan engagement platform and KBFC Passport, a customized Membership program with two objectives in mind-to be more inclusive with fans as well as to take a collective approach in select decision making.

Giving it back to football, the club has launched the ‘KBFC Young Blasters’ program, a Grassroots and Youth development initiative for budding and passionate talents across the state. As torchbearers of football development in Kerala, Technique, Purpose and Joy are the three core values that the club upholds through ‘Young Blasters’, which will operate in three different segments: KBFC Young Blasters Football Schools. KBFC Young Blasters Affiliated Academy and KBFC Young Blasters Football Centres.

Truly representative of the philosophy of the club, the Team Logo, which is an elephant rightly reflects the aspiration and spirit of Kerala Blasters.
