Chennaiyin FC, forced to play away from home, showed their support towards the flood-affected people of Chennai ahead of their first leg semi-finals encounter against Atletico de Kolkata in Pune. The team, skippered by Bernard Mendy, wore t-shirts, bearing the slogan ‘Pray for Chennai’ over their official blue jerseys during the pre-match build up.

Torrential rains in the southern city forced the ISL management to shift Chennai’s home game from the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to the Shri Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium in Pune.
