ISL(Indian Super League) by IMG-Reliance is a phenomenon that took football in India to a whole new level.With it, rose many players who were unknown to a majority of Indians. Now, with the country gearing up for the grand finale of this season, the final venue, Kochi, is bathed in Yellow. Yes, the home team would play against the mighty Atlético de Kolkata in few hours.
I never missed a home match in 2014 and this time I couldn’t watch a single match at the stadium ( work life is turning me dumb ).
The venue, Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium is already filled with fans from all over India.The roads are blocked and traffic is at snail pace.Fans from all over Kerala, especially from the Malabar region have flocked to Kochi ever since Kerala Blasters made its entry into finals. Huge screens have popped up around the city for those unlucky fans who couldn’t get a ticket(I’m one!!). Even tried to get one from a guy who had three, but he wouldn’t sell it(Poor businessman).He looked at me like I had demanded both his kidneys!!
Waiting to watch the 2014 champion Atlético de Kolkata lock horns with the Yellow Army.Will 2014 repeat? Will Kerala Blasters thrash Atlético de Kolkata for the roaring home crowd, the loudest in India?
