Highlighting the strong relationship that CFC and Nippon Paint have shared over the years, Chennaiyin FC co-owner Vita Dani said, “This is the fifth year of our association between Chennaiyin FC and Nippon Paint, and it’s been a fruitful relationship for both stakeholders. We look forward to a successful season ahead with Nippon Paint continuing to inspire us.”

The partnership has created several community-driven initiatives like ‘Adding Colors To Life,’ bringing out stories of the stakeholders, fans, community members, and people from the city carrying out selfless deeds during the Covid-induced lockdown last year.

“Our faith in Chennaiyin FC continues, and that’s for everyone to see through our consistent association with them. Everyone at Nippon Paint are connected with the club, and we wish the squad the best of luck for the new season.” said Mahesh S. Anand, President (Decorative Paint), Nippon Paint India.
