When Virat Kohli comes on board as a co-owner he brings in a value to enhance financial fortunes of a commercial venture. As Goa FC go into the Indian Super League Season 5 hunting for sponsors, India’s biggest brand ambassador and team co-owner has stepped in to promote Brand Goa FC and its philosophy for an new ISL season.
Just a day ahead of the Hero Indian Super League season 5 kick-off, India cricket captain and co-owner of FC Goa, Virat Kohli, released a video stating how determined his team is to clinch its first title. Kohli, in the video released on FC Goa’s official Twitter handle, explains the choice of FC Goa’s new jersey colour and states it resembles ‘fire’, ‘focus’ and the ‘hunger’ to win the trophy and supplements the team’s attitude and spirit.
Unlike previous editions, FC Goa this time will don an orange jersey.
Kohli maintained that he is confident that FC Goa will do wonders in ISL 2018-19. The 29-year-old added that he is extremely happy to be a part of the Goa franchise while applauding the team’s performance under Spanish coach Sergio Lobera last year.

The Indian skipper believes that Sergio’s experience added a huge impact in the squad and helped the players gain confidence. He further said that the Spanish coach has built a squad which can go on to clinch the ISL title this year.
Thanking the fans for their unconditional love and support that they have shown throughout the ISL campaign, Kohli concluded by saying that with this immense support FC Goa will rise to the occasion and bring the trophy home. “Now we rise, Forca Goa,” he said. FC Goa finished third in the previous season of ISL.
