Does East Bengal's 'Biggest' Tifo during Kolkata Derby Make Top 5 Tifos in Indian football?
#4 Manjappadas’ tifo
Probably the noisiest supporters of Indian football are none other than the supporters of Kerala Blasters, who call themselves Manjappada. Kerala is known for its passionate love towards football. Even a local game would attract thousands of fans.
So, when the ISL started, the fans got a reason to cheer. From the very first season, the spectators filled the stadium. Within no time, they formed the Manjappada group, which got registered a few years ago. Unlike most of the fan groups, they have a dedicated office set up at Kochi.
Manjappada have found innovative ways to cheer their favourite team and one of them is a tifo. More often than not, they came out with small and medium tifos with motivatonal messages.
But their biggest and most popular tifo happened to the one against Mumbai City this season. The entire state was devastated due to the heavy rain and floods before the match. So Manjappada came out with a brilliant banner to pay tribute to the rescue efforts of the state.
The tifo showed a rescue helicopter and a boat which is carried by several people, including armymen, civilians, doctors, farmers and many other people of different interests. The tifo became an instant hit and went viral on the social media.
