In India, Kerala is a place where football is loved a bit more than cricket - a phenomenon rarely seen in the country. From the Indian professional football clubs to international tournaments, Kerala has produced many of the finest players of the country.

Kerala Blasters FC is one of the eight teams to have been part of the Indian Super League (ISL) since its inception. The club was established on 24th May 2014 ahead of the first season of ISL in October 2014.

The team name comes from one of the previous owner, former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who was known as the “Master Blaster” during his playing days. The owners of the team include industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad, Indian film stars Chiranjeevi as well as film producer Allu Arvind. On 26th September 2018 megastar of Malayalam cinema, Shri Mohanlal joined the club as the Goodwill Ambassador and Team Mentor.

Football craze in Kerala is partly due to the Argentina–Brazil rivalry in world football. It is common to see the streets of Kerala decorated with the flags and hoardings of Argentina and Brazil colours during major international competitions. The football passion of Keralites has evolved to the yellow army of Kerala Blasters.

Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Kochi is the home ground of Kerala Blasters FC and the incredible fan support of the team has been one of the major highlights of the ISL year in year out. The team has lead the league in attendance every season, regularly averaging over 55,000 fans a game. Kerala Blasters finished agonizingly as runners up in the inaugural season as well as the third season of the ISL.

Rooted in its family and community, the team logo of Elephant rightly reflects the aspiration and spirit of Kerala Blasters.
