India’s best supported English football club


I had been thinking of doing this poll for quite some time. Here’s my motivation behind it. India, with its massive population power (~1.2 billion) is a largely untapped market when it comes to European football. Only perhaps German side Bayern Munich have played a few games in India, and they have always been watched by audiences in excess of a 100,000 at the Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata. Sadly, one of the biggest reason of this absence is the lack of quality in the Indian local sides, and hence the inability to provide reasonable pre-season fixtures. This though, doesn’t in any way imply a lack of fan-following for the major European sides. On the contrary, there are huge fan groups for almost all top English clubs.

The percentages might comparatively come out smaller when compared to the support for say, the national cricket side or any of the IPL sides, but it should be noticed here that even small percentage numbers mean huge real population numbers with a market of the size of India. So is it your club that stands to gain the largest from this untapped market? Lets find out who you support -

  1. The more people tell me tat they hate Chelsea, the more my lövê & passion for my club CHELSEA increases. Also more than half of indian so called soccer supporters tat which english club they support they’ll surely say barcelona, bcoz they dnt knw anything abt football not even nationality.

    Chelsea I’m & Always Will Be.

    There’s only 2 shit & jealous & cheater club’s in PL Loopool oops liverpool & mancheater divided oops united. They suck.

    • Awww using accents when writing ‘love’? Worse than a fag. Reminds me of the official song that Chelsea wrote for Torres last Jan and I’m sure it gives you hots.
      And attempt at humor in the last sentence? I’m sure you’re pleased with it because that’s what your standard is. And berating Indians because they don’t know about nationalities of football clubs? Guess what, none of those guys need your stamp of approval to do whatever you please. Tell you what, be an internet troll, vent your fury and ideas on the net, write comments about lövê and wank to the idea. You’re just a whole damn loser on whom I wasted my last 3 minutes that I’m never going to get back.

  2. Liverpool is the best and will remain the best,coz it has something special which other clubs don’t have,i.e HISTORY <3 YNWA <3

  3. liverpool for ever,,,,,YNWA come on guys just write about the club u support and dont bull shit abt other clubs,,,,why cant u just support chelsea and be fine with it,,,,,,
