The 9th season of the Pro Kabaddi League, also called the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League due to sponsorship reasons, is about to come to an end and declare its winner.
Launched in 2014, the PKL is a men’s professional Kabbadi league, and its inception was influenced by the popularity of the Kabaddi tournament at the 2006 Asian Games. Its format was influenced by the Indian Premier League, and it also used a franchise-based model.
Since its inception, the league has brought a revolution to the sport of Kabaddi, as people who once stuck to only cricket have shown their interest in watching Kabaddi.
