With an exhilarating season on the horizon, U Mumba is fully prepared. The freshly designed jersey, crafted with meticulous precision and thoughtfulness, symbolises the team’s unwavering dedication to excellence and unity. It also encapsulates the enduring resilience and spirit of Mumbai, which U Mumba proudly represents.
The launch event saw Vicky Kaushal, portraying Sam Bahadur, alongside team owner Ronnie Screwvala and CEO Suhail Chandhok, as well as key players from the Season 10 squad including Surinder Singh, Mahender Singh, Rinku, Girish Ernak, Guman Singh, and Pranay Rane.
“The jersey is intricately woven with elements that embody the essence of Mumbai city. It captures the vibrancy, diversity, and relentless spirit of this bustling metropolis. Each thread narrates a tale, reflecting the city’s ceaseless energy and U Mumba’s pursuit of excellence,” expressed Suhail Chandhok, CEO of U Mumba.
A standout feature of the jersey is its tribute to the ocean – a nod to Mumbai’s original inhabitants, the Koli community, and the water that forms the foundation of this seven-island city.
“The waves depicted on the jersey symbolize the potential challenges our players might face during the Pro Kabaddi League season. They serve as a reminder to be adaptable and resilient, like water, ready to tackle any obstacles that come their way,” added Chandhok.
During the event, U Mumba also announced their leadership for the upcoming season, with Surinder Singh continuing as Captain, and Rinku Sharma and Mahender Singh serving as Vice-Captains.
Paras Sharma, Director of Content and Community Partnerships at Meta, India, remarked, “We consistently foster sports fandom on our platforms, collaborating with teams to expand their audience. Our partnership with U Mumba allows us to connect creators and public figures, aiming to enhance kabaddi’s popularity before the Pro-Kabaddi League and provide creators with opportunities to interact with diverse athletes.”
Furthermore, local Mumbai icon player, Girish Ernak, was announced as the Spirit of Mumba Captain. His role is to mentor young talents in the team from across the country and ensure the positive spirit of the team remains strong throughout the competitive season.
