Indian Super League (ISL) 2015 is just a little more than a fortnight away and the franchises are doing their best to get fans to chant the names of their favourite teams on the field. In line with the build-up, FC Pune City has released the teaser of its team song.
The song featuring Bollywood superstar and the team co-owner Hrithik Roshan was unveiled by the actor on Tuesday. The teaser video was shared on FC Pune City's official Facebook page.

The teaser takes a tour of the Pune city, which is also known as the cultural capital of Maharashtra. The fans engage themselves in showcasing their football skills while sporting the FC Pune City jersey. Hrithik Roshan is also seen showing off his skills with the ball. The full song is yet to be released and is expected to happen just ahead of the second edition of the Indian Super League which kick-starts from 2 October.
Roshan has been very passionate about his team ever since the inception of the ISL in 2014. He has been backing the players in his side right after the ISL auctions that took place earlier this year. FC Pune City was lucky enough to rope in two Indian players who missed out on the ISL action last year due to their commitments with their I-League club Bengaluru FC. Jakichand Singh and Eugeneson Lyngdoh will be donning the orange and purple stripes in the forthcoming season of the ISL.
In the first edition of the ISL, FC Pune City finished sixth in the points table. They came close to qualifying for the knock-out stage as well but lost too many games towards the end, thereby hampering their chances of making it to the semi-finals.
FC Pune City will be starting their ISL 2015 campaign against their rivals Mumbai City FC on 5 October at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium in Pune.
