Why Will Gujarat Titans Wear Lavender Jerseys in IPL 2024?

As you must be aware, Gujarat Titans players wear a dark blue jersey in the IPL. However, on May 13, 2024, they will don lavender colour jerseys against Kolkata Knight Riders in their last home game.

But why will Gujarat Titans wear lavender jerseys?

The Reason Behind Gujarat Titans Wearing Lavender Jersey

Gujarat Titans players will don the lavender jerseys as part of their initiative to spread awareness about cancer. The lavender colour is used to draw attention to cancer survivors and the disease overall.

So, the 2022 IPL champions will march out on the field wearing lavender jerseys and take a stand against cancer. The kind gesture will focus on creating awareness about early detection and improving the fight against cancer with access to quality care.

However, this is not the first time the Titans will put on the lavender jerseys. They first initiated the cancer awareness campaign in IPL 2023 by donning special jerseys against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

This special gesture from Gujarat Titans puts them among a handful of IPL teams that have done something similar for other social causes.

For instance, Royal Challengers Bengaluru players wear green jerseys once every season to raise awareness about the global warming issue.
