The ‘Charge’ of RCB Fans

In June 2021, after the first phase of IPL 2021, KKR has ~500,000 fans more than RCB. However, buoyed by the strong performance of their team in the first phase of IPL, RCB fans were firmly behind their team more than ever, and their graph was trending upwards.

In January 2022, RCB has ~800,000 fans more than KKR. A relatively strong show by RCB in the second phase of IPL 2021, and an emotional announcement of Virat giving up RCB captaincy, has kept the fan numbers buzzing, as they look for the formation of a strong team for IPL 2022.
