Royal Challengers Bangalore will wear the green jersey as a part of their Go Green initiative when they take on Chennai Super Kings on Sunday. The Bangalore-based franchise wears the green jersey to spread a message on environmental conservation.

The franchise has worn the green dress in the previous editions as well. Royal Challengers Bangalore have been continuing this practice since the 2011 season to create awareness about environmental conservation. In the previous seasons, the side took initiatives to plant trees. They have also earlier asked the fans to travel by buses to save fuel.

In 2016, the Royal Challengers Bangalore players took the initiative to reach the stadium on cycle while CNG rikshaws were arranged for fans to reach the stadium. Last year, the franchise raised awareness of recycling. In this season, they are raising awareness about ‘keeping the planet clean and healthy’.

“RCB Go Green Initiative. RCB players will sport the Green Jerseys against CSK tomorrow to spread awareness about keeping the planet clean and healthy,” the franchise wrote on Twitter while posting a video in which their players could be seen raising awareness.
