The Metronation Television Chennai Pvt. Ltd. has announced the name of its Tamil Nadu Premier League franchise and unveiled the logo.

The team name and logo were picked from a fan contest. Team owner Sivanthi Adityan (grandson of the late Sivanthi Adithyan) said: “Across the world, the success and popularity of any sports team largely depends on its fan following and loyalty. That’s why we decided to engage them via a contest, and the response was overwhelming.”
