Chennai Super Kings Launches Kings Club

With only ten days left for the start of Champions Twenty20 League, Chennai Super Kings management team is slowly springing into action. They have started with a bang by launching the official membership programme -  “Kings Club”. The fan club was launched  today at Chennai by Mr. T. S. Raghupathy, Executive President, The India Cements Limited in the presence of Mr. K. V. P. Baskar, Operations Director, South, Aircel Cellular Limited. Adding to the excitement was percussionist par excellence, Mr. Sivamani. 

The KINGS CLUB membership programme consists of two membership levels, Senior and Junior. Membership is for a year which can be renewed subsequently and is priced at Rs. 500 for School Children(Junior) and Rs 1,000 for others(Senior). The KINGS CLUB offers its members, unique incentives designed to satisfy their priorities: 

  •  Home ticket priority access & Discounts for IPL home Matches
  • Invites to practice sessions
  •  Welcome gift hamper with a host of goodies
  • Participation in special events
  • Newsletters
  • Discounts on team merchandise available on the E-Store
  • Photo opportunities with the cricket stars

With the Kings Club, Chennai Super Kings has extended its relationship with its fans and has provided them with an opportunity to belong to the extended family of the Chennai Super Kings. Also it makes much more sense in these days of credit crunch to bring in cash into the company by using Chennai Super Kings' Brand Name.

Enrolling in the KINGS CLUB is easy. Membership forms will be available from Friday November 28, 2008 at select outlets of CafĂ© Coffee Day and Aircel. Filled in forms with cheques attached can be dropped off at various collection centres. Within a week, membership cards will be dispatched and a welcome kit with gift hamper in 3 to 4 weeks time. There is also the option of joining the fan club by visiting www.chennaisuperkings.com to register their payments and details. 

My Take on Kings Club
Though the benefits of Kings Club is not yet clear, i think it is worth the money to buy one (I am buying one), if you plan to go to the stadium during IPL or CL T20.

First things first...Throw the players who call India as a Third world country away..It needs no special pointing towards somebody. Dead on Matthew Hayden, if you have him in the team...Throw him out of your team. We will be left in dilemna if we support your team..Are we supporting a team who has players with no respect to the country which pays them or do we need to only enjoy the game...We are group of about 200 friends (with numbers growing) to boycott the games played by Chennai super kings...

I know it makes no difference to the Super kings, but atleast we will not feel guilty of supporting a team with a professional who calls India a third world country...I am Indian first and then a fan of some team

It is good that a fansite has been opened. To mend peoples (Matthew Hayden's) way of addressing (Third world) Countries, bloggers here should press hard to get Matthew Hayden thrown out of the team...Be very sure, we are not against Chennai Super kings...Let the professionals of the likes of Matt Hayden know that Cricket Australia can nowhere in his dreams match the "FEES" he gets from IPL and yet want to address India as a Third world..Absolutely not!!!!!!!!

@ vnangli,
I have already written my views on Hayden using the term "Third World country" - http://chennaisuperkings.blogspot.com/2008/11/hayden-in-midst-of-storm.html

Summary of what i said there.. Hayden never called India a third world country.. He was merely talking about irritants inside the field...

Robin,
I feel pain to see you defending Hayden. Yeh... you may be big fan of that 'filthy mouth', but be indian first.

@ Ravikiran,
First things first.. I respect Hayden as a Chennai Super Kings player.. But I am not a fan.. What my request to all CSK fans is please do not misinterpret what Hayden said without reading his interview.. What has happened is that people have read some idiotic news paper taking the comments out of proportion. So do read his whole interview first hand.. Also I am a human being first and then only I am an Indian..
