The event, which saw a group of 187 RCB fans come together, was organized by the sportswear brand PUMA at Jayamahal Palace in Bengaluru.

“PUMA has always believed in connecting fans with sports culture by creating personalized experiential events for them. We are committed to engaging and serving our consumers in the best possible way. It was great to see cricket fans come in such a huge number to set this new world record. The atmosphere was quite electrifying, and we are glad to get fans on a single platform for this initiative,”

Abhishek Ganguly, Managing Director, PUMA India & Southeast Asia said.

Popularly known as 12th Man Army, the RCB fans wore the team’s jersey along with cricketing gear while securing the record.

“Fans always play a crucial part in sporting journeys and having loyal and passionate fans is always a blessing for any sportsperson or a team,”

Olympic bronze medallist in hockey Rupinder Pal Singh said.

On Thursday, Royal Challengers Bangalore kept their playoff hopes alive with a comprehensive victory against table-toppers Gujarat Titans. The game saw RCB’s Virat Kohli in fine form as the batter scored a fluent 73 off 54 deliveries. The RCB fans took over the Wankhede stadium as chants in the name of Kohli echoed in the arena.
