The message is displayed on the back of both the jerseys.

During the tribute jersey launch, RCB  chairman Sanjeev Churiwala said, “Royal Challengers Bangalore has always stood for playing bold in the face of adversities and we believe that right now these Covid heroes are embodying this purpose by relentlessly fighting for the greater good. Humanity is going to be grateful to them for many generations to come and through this campaign, we wanted to be among the first to pay tribute to their challenger spirit both on and off the field.”

I am truly proud to wear RCB’s “My Covid Heroes” jersey as a sign of solidarity and gratitude to everyone who is right now going the extra mile to support the community at large.
