GKFC join Indian Olympic Fan Army

Kozhikode, July 19: Gokulam Kerala FC and its fans will be part of the Indian Olympic Fan Army, an initiative by MPL Sports Foundation, to give the Indian Olympic team its own fan group. MPL Sports Foundation is the Principal Partner of the Indian Olympic contingent to the Tokyo Olympics.

Fans of both the champion clubs of the two premier football leagues of India are part of this movement. FC Goa, the former ISL champion, and Gokulam Kerala FC, the current I-League champion, are bringing in their combined might to this massive fan initiative.

Besides Gokulam Kerala FC and FC Goa, two-time IPL Champions, Kolkata Knight Riders are bringing all its fans together to be part of the Indian Olympic Fan Army.

Real Kashmir FC, the I-League club that has been celebrated for bringing hope and transforming lives in the Kashmir Valley, has also joined this initiative to support the Indian Olympic team.

The fans of Shillong Lajong FC, the first football club from the North East, to make a mark in the national club football, are also joining in.

While Indian sports clubs and teams have historically had their own fan bases, the Indian Olympic team, which has brought glory to the nation on the highest stage of world sports, has never had any fan army. The Indian Olympic Fan Army will be a 25 million fan base of some of India’s most celebrated sports teams across India.

“We are proud to be part of this initiative. As a football club, we believe that we have to back our athletes. We will ask our fans to support the initiative and we use our social media platforms to amplify the reach of the initiative,” said VC Praveen, the president of Gokulam Kerala FC.

“It is a matter of great honour and privilege for us at the MPL Sports Foundation that all of these illustrious clubs, franchises, and fan groups have come together to make India’s first Olympic Fan Army. We will rally behind our athletes as they seek to make the entire nation proud at

Tokyo. Here’s to our heroes,” said Sai Srinivas, Trustee, MPL Sports Foundation, and Co-founder and CEO, Mobile Premier League.

As Tokyo remains out of bounds for spectators and keeping in mind the covid restrictions in India, this will be a virtual fan movement. There are various activities planned including a call out to the entire fanbase to become fans of the Indian Olympic team, know them, watch their events, and cheer for them. A large engagement exercise has been planned with the fans submitting their fan moments through photographs and videos.

“We will continue in investing in women’s football. We want our women team to lift the AFC trophy first and set an example for our men’s team,” said Gokulam Gopalan.

We believe that if we win the title it will make our women flagbearers of the country in Asian football and our aim is to do our best,” said VC Praveen, the president of the GKFC.

Gokulam Kerala FC have been a torchbearer of women’s football in the country since its inception. The club has participated in all the IWL editions after the club was formed. And it is the only club from the ILeague/Indian Super League to participate in the Hero Indian Women’s League until now.

With the nomination, the club has become the first club from the country to get entry to both the men’s and women’s continental championship. GKFC men team had gained entry to participate in AFC Cup by virtue of winning the ILeague 2020-21 edition.
