World’s first Kabaddi League launched in India
The sport of Kabaddi is set for a major facelift with the launch of World Kabaddi League. The League follows the Formula 1 format and will be held across four continents from August to December. It is set to be inaugurated in New Delhi in June.
Sukhbir Singh Badal, president of World Kabaddi League, said, “In the northern region of the Indian sub-continent, Kabaddi is an extremely popular sport and the last four Kabaddi World Cups held in India bear testimony to the same. I am extremely proud to let the world know of India’s sporting prowess in the field of Kabaddi through World Kabaddi League. In its current form the League will be played across four continents with access to nearly 200 Kabaddi clubs across the world.” The official website of the league (http://www.worldkabaddileague.net/ ) was launched by Badal in New Delhi on Tuesday.
