A tete-a-tete with Junaid - the young CSK Super Fan
Junaid Ahmed is a young student of commerce hailing from Hyderabad. But he considers himself to be the Biggest Superfan of CSK and Dhoni, with his heart always in Chennai.
He proudly exclaims his love For CSK began way back in 2013 when he first witnessed his soon-to-be team in action in the Indian Premier League.
In no time, he started following all the players and as time passed by, his love For CSK and the Thala kept on growing. For him, Jersey is his absolute and the Most Special Moment of His Life remains the 2018 title win, the year CSK returned from a ban and everyone had put them down. But the team led by Dhoni rose like kings!
For Junaid, CSK and Dhoni have provided the ultimate support and motivation throughout his life, no matter what. Whatever he does in his life, they have always been the ones whom he sees and feels Blessed and Relieved.
When Covid-19 hit, the IPL was played in stadiums without fans. This did not stop Junaid from supporting CSK and cheering His Team with the same passion and joy, but from home. He decorated his home with CSK.
2021 was a season to witness for Junaid with CSK lifting the IPL title for the 4th Time in The CSK STYLE!! For him, CSK has always been something bigger and special than family. The way they love their fans no other team can match. The Relationship between CSK and their Fans has always been one to cherish.
Apart from this, like all Super Fans, he too has Match Day Superstitions –
“Mine Is During Every CSK Match Day, I Watch CSK Anthem 10 Times and Wear CSK Jersey!!”
Junaid admits IPL 2022 wasn’t CSK’s best but it produced memories he will cherish forever as he watched the Super Kings live in a stadium for the very first time! The 15 hours long train tourney in flesh and blood! That day of seeing them play live still gives him an adrenaline rush in his veins.
