Kabaddi World Cup 2016

The eighth edition of Kabaddi World Cup will be held in India in October. International Kabaddi Federation (IKF) will organise the event. The event will be held in the state-of-the-art multi-purpose stadium- The Arena, developed by TransStadia. 12 countries including hosts India will take part in the Kabaddi World Cup. United States of America, Canada, England, Australia, Iran, Poland, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Korea, Japan and Kenya are the other nations. Poland will participate in the Kabaddi World Cup for the first time while Kenya will appear for the second time.

This is a proud moment for kabaddi as the excitement created by the domestic pro kabaddi league (PKL) is sure to be a booster for the Kabaddi World Cup as well since they both will follow the same format of the sport.

Looking at the line up of countries from all over the world participating in the kabaddi world cup 2016, one can only say that Kabaddi is well on its path to become one of the most popular sports on earth, a place, that it truly deserves.
I want to end this post with our motto    .... 
Play Kabaddi

Pro Kabaddi League Season 2

Pro Kabaddi League season 2 has announced its arrival with a blockbuster ad featuring none other than Salman Khan and that too using the Cricket World Cup 2015 Jingle "Mauka Mauka". The ad features Salman Khan telling cricket fans that they have another chance ("mauka") to watch high adrenaline sports action in the form of KABADDI.

With this kind of start Pro Kabaddi Seaon 2 will surely touch newer heights of success and establish Kabaddi as one of the most watched sports in India.

It's not just a sport!!

Kabaddi is not just a sport.
It is a game native to India. It represents the soul of India.
In rural India Kabaddi is one of the most popular games.
The interesting thing about Kabaddi is that no equipment is required to play this sport. You just need a small piece of land, draw the lines and you are ready to go. 

Kabaddi is a game of swiftness, intelligence and physical power. Kabaddi needs to be revived among youth and Kabaddi teams and tournaments require more sponsors and support from government side. It can also be considered to make Kabaddi as national game alongside hockey.

So just go on and play kabaddi !!!!
