Rivalry between KBFC and ATK is entirely different from that between KBFC and Chennaiyin Fc. Both the teams put up a tough show to win the trophy, and are really aggressive on the ground. But this competition is limited to the playground. Once they are out of the playground, they are cordial to each other just like their owners Saurav Ganguly and Sachin tendulkar. If you remember, when ATK became the winners of ISL season 1 KBFC were the runners up. But when Dada Ganguly received the trophy he called Sachin Tendulkar and shared it with him. Similar is the relationship between the fans of these two teams. They are highly competitive but yet so appreciative of each other.http://<script async src=”//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”></script> <ins class=”adsbygoogle” style=”display:block; text-align:center;” data-ad-layout=”in-article” data-ad-format=”fluid” data-ad-client=”ca-pub-9544644886957707″ data-ad-slot=”7654976088″></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script>

India’s football history starts from Kolkata, that is why Kolkata is called the Mecca of Indian Football. In a country full of cricket fanatics, Kolkata remains one of the very few cities that give importance to football as much as they give to cricket.

ATK Lifting ISL trophy

On the other hand, Kerala also has a long history in connection to football. In the past, Kerala has produced some great talents for Indian Football. Unlike other cities of India, if you take a survey on the most popular sport in Kerala, then surely it will be football. In Kerala, from small children to old people, everyone is crazy about this game. Therefore, the competition between ATK and KBFC is also about who is a bigger patron of football, so they do not miss out on even a single chance to prove their love for the game and their team.

In the inaugural match of ISL, ATK registered a record attendance and in the season Kerala Blasters registered highest average attendance. Fans of both the teams have fought so many times on this topic because they love their club so much and want their club to be the best at any cost.

In the inaugural season, KBFC and ATK reached the finals. Everyone’s eyes were on this match because the winner of the finals would win the war of words. ATK won the finals. I can never forget how our own Dada Sourav Ganguly showed respect to sachin tendulkar and kerala blasters while receiving the trophy. Even Kerala blasters fans congratulated ATK fans on social media.

In 2015, fans had a new reason to troll each other. ATK signed Kerala Blasters’ fan favourites Iain Hume and Stephen Pearson. In the second season, the war of words did not go long because KBFC showed its worst performance and finished at the bottom of the table.

But in the third season, again both the teams performed well and both the teams reached the finals. This time Kerala Blasters fans were waiting for the payback for the loss in the finals of the 2014 season. But again ATK won the finals. But this time some fans congratulated each other while some made abusive comments.http://<script async src=”//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”></script> <ins class=”adsbygoogle” style=”display:block; text-align:center;” data-ad-layout=”in-article” data-ad-format=”fluid” data-ad-client=”ca-pub-9544644886957707″ data-ad-slot=”7654976088″></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script>

This time the fans of both the teams are gearing up for the upcoming season. The fans of both the teams believe that they are the strongest and are going to lift the trophy this season.

I still remember, I had some friends in my hostel who were from Kolkata, they were supporting Kolkata and I being a south Indian, was supporting KBFC. We used to fight and tease each other, but after the match, we were back together as friends.

So the competition between atk fans and kbfc fans is a special one. It begins with their love for the game and ends with the same, there is no other factor playing any role here.
