Below you can find all updates on India’s Pro Kabaddi league, the most popular and widely acclaimed Kabaddi league in the world.
After inaugurating the league back in 2014, the sport took India by storm recording the second most views of any sport in India behind only cricket. Since then there have been 5 seasons with the most recent season taking place from July 2017 until October 2017. This renewed excitement around the sport caused a revival in the Kabaddi World Cup which was hosted in Autumn 2016. This was broadcast across the world including on Sky Sports in the UK and on Fox Sports in the USA.
Kabaddi continues to grow across the world particularly in Asia where we’ve seen Korean and Iranian players take part in the ProKabaddi league. With players also from Kenya, Poland and England taking part in previous editions Kabaddi is sure to keep on growing. Recent figures have suggested that ProKabaddi Season 5 will be the most watched sport in India overtaking cricket. Now with 12 teams in the league and the Women’s Kabaddi Challenge taking place in season 3 the IKF (International Kabaddi Federation) have built a foundation upon which to carry the game further.
