Chairmen of RCB team said that”We are the first IPL team to have home and away jerseys,” and its owner United Spirits Ltd’s chief marketing officer Amrit Thomas. Divided into two groups, the RCB players led by Captain Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle showcased the two jerseys.

Talking about the team, captain Kohli said, “This time we have a better team. And Bengaluru has always had the best fan base. That’s why I love coming back to the city.”
Recalling the just concluded World Twenty20 tournament, Kohli engaged in some banter with Gayle.
“We hate you for having beaten us. But after that we were all rooting for the West Indies anyway,” he told Gayle.
The jerseys have been designed by Michael Foley and manufactured by Bengaluru-based company Zeven; they are made of Atmocool fabric. RCB selected a group of fans as The Bold Army after a selection process to be the official cheer squad.
The Bengaluru team also unveiled its team anthem, RCB PlayBold Anthem, composed by Salim Merchant while the whole event was live streamed on the team’s official Facebook page.
