New Delhi: IPL 2023 season is moving towards its conclusion and now only a few matches are left. All the teams are about to play their last match. The last match of Lucknow Super Giants is to be against Kolkata Knight Riders. This match will be played at Kolkata’s home ground and the color of football is also going to be seen in this match because like Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans, the color of Lucknow is also going to change.
Lucknow is currently firmly in the race for the playoffs. Lucknow, who are third in the points table, will have to get a playoff ticket in their last match and for this the team will be present in Kolkata on Saturday, May 20. Although this city is the home of Knight Riders, but now it has a special association with Lucknow as well.
Lucknow in the colors of Mohun Bagan
Due to this relationship, in its last match, Lucknow will come on the field with a changed jersey. Lucknow Super Giants introduced a new jersey for their last match, wearing which the team will compete against Kolkata. The color of this jersey will not be blue, but maroon and green. Exactly like Mohun Bagan, the famous Indian football club of Kolkata.

Now if you are wondering why the people of Lucknow are only adopting the colors of this club. So the reason for this is Sanjiv Goenka, the owner of Lucknow Super Giants. In fact, Goenka is also the owner of the Mohun Bagan club and hence this Lucknow club will wear jerseys of the same color as a tribute to the legendary club.
RCB-GT also changed jersey
Before Lucknow, Bangalore and Gujarat Titans have also landed on the field with changed jerseys. Bangalore, like every season, plays one match of the season in a green jersey instead of its red jersey, giving the message of environmental protection. At the same time, Gujarat Titans recently played their match wearing lavender colored jerseys giving the message of cancer awareness.
