Video Surface: KKR Fans Barred from Bringing Banners to Chepauk Stadium

Ahead of the IPL 2024 match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Chepauk Stadium, a video surfaced on social media depicting security officials barring KKR fans from bringing supportive banners into the venue. The clip showed security personnel confiscating a large banner, much to the disappointment of eager fans.

The incident prompted criticism, with the handle on X sharing the video along with a caption expressing dismay at the treatment of away fans. The caption highlighted the baseless reasons provided by stadium management for disallowing banners, questioning whether this was an appropriate way to treat visiting supporters.

Moreover, the atmosphere was further strained as a section of fans reportedly booed when KKR’s Sunil Narine scored a boundary. This incident echoes a similar occurrence where fans were allegedly prohibited from carrying posters of Rohit Sharma at Wankhede Stadium, accompanied by booing directed at Hardik Pandya.

Such instances raise concerns about the treatment of away fans and the need for fair and inclusive practices in stadium management. The episode at Chepauk Stadium serves as a reminder of the importance of fostering a welcoming environment for supporters of all teams, enhancing the overall experience of IPL matches for fans across the board.
