CHENNAI: Today’s match will be Chennaiyin FC’s 53rd and the last match on home ground. Ahead of the match with Delhi Dynamos, City Express catches the excitement among Chennai fans, a few of whom have taken to social media sites to voice their support.

Football lovers say that more than the game, it is the experience of watching it that matters. According to Madhu G, a football fan, “The support for Chennai football team is similar to that for IPL’s CSK. The club format helps people connect with the sport. It also leads to the start of many parallel initiatives to help children learn and connect with football, from the grassroots.”

With the matches scheduled in the evenings, fans like Akash N, a chartered account, says that it allows him and his friends to head to Nehru Stadium after work and catch the game along with the crowd.

On the Web world, ISL has seen a whopping 76,696 followers on Twitter and Chennaiyin FC has garnered 39,000. Meanwhile, over 162 ,000 people have liked the official page of the team.
