Lucknow Super Giants Jersey and Theme song: Lucknow Super Giants – one of the 2 new IPL teams have unveiled their official jersey and theme song. As per IPL 2022 schedule, Lucknow Super Giants will play their first match against Gujarat Titans on March 28, 2022 at Wankhede Stadium.

Notably, the novelty of the Lucknow team’s new jersey is the colour aquamarine blue which has never been used by any team in IPL.
“This is the first time it’s being used,” Goenka told PTI.
Lucknow Super Giants Theme Song
“It has been designed by young designer Kunal Rawal, who works with Bollywood biggies. The theme song has been sung by Badshah and choreography done by Remo de Souza”.
“In Lucknow, we hear that they always say ‘Pahle Aap, Pahle Aap’ but here our team will say ‘Pahle Hum. We have come here to win’,” Goenka asserted.
Asked what exactly is his mantra of running an IPL franchise, the chairman of the RPSG group said: “I run my businesses on a simple principle. Hire the right kind of people for the right job and good execution.
“That’s 80 percent of the job done. There is 15 percent of strategizing, vision and creating a structure. This is 95 percent and the remaining five percent is all about motivating the team.” Goenka is very happy that Gautam Gambhir is the mentor of the team.
“A lot of my job became easier when Gautam agreed to my request of being the mentor of this team. I have known him for a long time and I have complete faith in his judgment,” Goenka said.
While he believes in a long-term vision, he is confident that his INR 7000 crore plus investment (highest bid for an IPL team) will pay dividends in the long run.
“You know, I have no hesitation in admitting that it is a great investment. The value will only grow as the time goes on.”
But, that doesn’t change the fact that he believes in winning. The last time when he had the Pune franchise for two years, his team reached the finals in the second year only to lose in a last-ball finish.
“You are in the league to win and there is no compromise on that. We have created a team and I am confident they will go out there and perform.”
From the last time, he owned an IPL franchise briefly, the viewership has only increased, observed Goenka.
“The viewership has increased. Also UP with its 26 crore population is an incredible state and I am sure we will get a lot of love and affection,” he added.
