ISL Pune team ropes in Arjun Kapoor as brand ambassador
MUMBAI: Indian Super League team FC Pune City has signed on Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor as its brand ambassador for the inaugural season of the ISL.
FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel said, “In the formative years of FC Pune City, we want to be associated with people who share a common passion for sport and football. With our tie-up with ACF Fiorentina, our partnership with Hrithik Roshan as co-owner, and our current signing up of Arjun Kapoor as our brand ambassador, we are a formidable force.
Bollywood actor Hritik Roshan, who co-owns the franchise, said, “We are proud to have Arjun Kapoor as FC Pune City’s brand ambassador. I have known him for a long time and ever since I remember, football has been an integral part of his life. Arjun embodies dynamism, grit and an unbridled energy—elements that form the core of FC Pune City.
“This, coupled with his love for the sport, made him an obvious choice as a brand ambassador for the club. I would like to thank Mr Kapil Wadhawan for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful club.
“It is going to be a pleasure for me to watch the first home game of my team, FC Pune City, alongside Gaurav Modwel and Arjun Kapoor.”
Kapoor said, “The enthusiasm and interest in the sport is what drives me to be a part of this mega league. Football has always been very dear to me, and I have grown up playing and following football. So, it was natural for me to take the first opportunity to associate with a promising football club in the Indian Super League, more so if it represents India’s youth capital Pune.”
