Kabaddi is the most celebrated traditional contact sport in India. Pro Kabaddi League is a double round robin-league comprising playoffs between proficient kabaddi teams. Powered by Vivo Communication technology, the Pro Kabaddi league is a professional sporting fest, endorsing the slogan of “Le Panga,” that enlivens the spirit of kabaddi in its true sense.

Inspired from the massive success of Kabaddi as an individual sport in the 2006 Asian Games, the Indian format of the Pro Kabaddi League was adopted to promote the sport on main Stream. The sporting event was officially launched in the year 2014. Interestingly, it gained massive support and viewership in the first season itself. 

There had been initial speculations about the success of the PKL as the mass appeal compared to Cricket was relatively low. However, the reality of the sport’s stance can be realised by the fact that its history is rooted in the country at the grassroots level and has the potential to attract a wider circumference of viewers if the league managed to gain traction in the initial phase.

According to the Pro Kabaddi League Schedule, twelve domestic teams, representing variegated states will be participating in the matches. This year, it is going to be the eighth edition since its inception. The matches are set to commence from 22nd December, 2021, after rounds of deliberation pertaining to the COVID-19 breakdown.

The latest season will be hosted in only one venue: Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru. Read on to focus on some of the best performances displayed by each team in the segments of the Pro Kabaddi League.
