RCB has been wearing a ‘green kit’ for one match every season since IPL 2011 as part of the ‘Go Green’ initiative to raise awareness about planting more trees, reducing waste and maintaining a greener and cleaner environment.

The shirt is made from recycled waste collected at the stadium and is usually worn during an afternoon match. Therefore, RCB will take on KKR, the first 3:30 PM match of the season.

The first time RCB played in a green jersey was in 2011 against former IPL franchise, Kochi Tuskers, in which they won by nine wickets.
