SIX5SIX x Kerala Blasters Jerseys 2022-23: Kerala is one of the most vibrant places when it comes to football. A tradition of adoration for football has long existed in Kerala, and legends like Thiruvalla Pappan, Olympian T.A. Rahman, T.K. Chathunni, V.P. Sathyan, and many more have carried the baton forward. Furthermore, with the introduction of Kerala Blasters F.C. in 2014 in the Indian Super League (ISL), the believes of collectivism, inclusivity, and sportsmanship has made the sport even more popular.

There’s no place quite as vibrant as Kerala, where celebration is a way of life. Whether it’s festivals or football, the way that the locals worship/celebrate both is something we were inspired by.
This jersey is a cultural amalgamation of both - the beautiful game and the various festivals as a way of life for the local.
We used 5 elements to design the home kit to capture what the beautiful state of Kerala is all about and annexed it to the home kit.
