Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) urged fans to wear a mask whenever they leave their house. The franchise also posted an updated logo, in which the lion can be seen wearing a mask.
They even made the latest logo as their display picture on social media until the end of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2021). India is struggling to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as cases are increasing rapidly.
"Before you go 'why's the lion wearing a mask?', It's just our way of saying, 'no matter who you are, mask up when you leave your home!' We are going to make this our DP across SM platforms until the end of #IPL2021. Stay Safe, Save Lives, because it's #1Team1Fight against Covid," RCB wrote in the caption.
RCB were supposed to play against Kolkata Knight wearing a blue jersey in honor of the frontline warriors against COVID-19. But the 30th match of IPL 2021 was postponed after KKR's Varun Chakaravarthy, Sandeep Warrier tested positive for Coronavirus.
"Not today. We will soon announce the date when RCB will sport the Blue jersey. ???? #PlayBold #WeAreChallengers," wrote RCB in another tweet.
