BANGALORE: Many parts of the city donned the colour Red, to cheer  their champions from the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who were competing in the Chinnaswamy Stadium in their very first match of the current season of the Indian Premier League.

Streets full of fans wearing red jerseys, carrying red flags with the RCB symbol, painting their faces red and yellow, strutted around. Traffic around all the gates of Chinnaswamy Stadium remained blocked for over an hour just before the match. Also with the match being telecast live, many jazzed up their attire with colourful tattoos, names of their favourite players and even wore wigs.

While the fans enjoyed, the traffic police who had been stationed across the stadium had a tough  time getting some of  them under control.

Many fans screamed in excitement every 20 minutes, when the RCB team cars made their way inside. In one corner of the stands, Siddharth Mallya was spotted with children.
