When it comes to sport and India, the colour blue is the first thing that is linked with the national team jerseys. It is visible on the field of play and in the stands. It also makes for a catchy ‘wave of blue’ or ‘sea of blue’ for the players to look on to for support and for the photographers to portray. It isn’t a recent phenomenon as we’ve seen sportspersons sport the blue for India over decades, and some of the country’s greatest sporting achievements have come in the blue jersey.

And this is the colour that kabaddi players would adorn and look for in the stands when the Kabaddi World Cup kicks off in Ahmedabad on October 7. So in the true spirit of the word, the team is asking everyone to come together as #OneBigBlue to cheer them on and help them lift the cup!

For this, some big names in the sporting arena have come across to put their weight behind the idea. It starts from cricketer Yuvraj Singh, goes on to 2012 London Olympics boxing bronze medallist Mary Kom, twice Asian Games gold medallist Pankaj Advani, current and former India hockey captains PR Sreejesh and Sardar Singh, 2012 London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal and 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev.

To be part of the wave of Indians who are cheering the team and the country on, simply tweet or post Facebook updates with the hashtag #OneBigBlue just the way our champions have. One can also show support with images and videos and show support for India.
