A team owned by JSW Sports, the Haryana Steelers have revealed a new logo for the upcoming season of the Pro Kabaddi League, which is going to start on 22 December 2021.
The brand-new icon for the team, which displays an energetically posed Bhima wielding his hefty mace, strongly leaning ahead with his arm and reaching out amazingly, defines Haryana Steelers centric morals of elasticity, determination and persistence. The logo also takes care of the emotion of an energetic and brave warrior.
“With the Pro Kabaddi League making a return this year, we wanted to present our identity in our logo for the eighth season. The Haryana Steelers has always signified the strength and tenacity of not only the kabaddi team but the entire state of Haryana. And therefore, we are ecstatic to reveal the brand new logo with a dynamically posed Bhima, which exemplifies all aspects of the Haryana Steelers. I hope the new logo brings us luck and reminds all the Haryana Steelers players about their identity each time they give their all on the mat.” said, Mustafa Ghouse, CEO, JSW Sports.
India’s Olympic medallist Sakshi Malik who hails from Haryana lent her voice for the logo’s introduction video. She also happens to be a fan of Kabaddi and has shown support towards the brand-new logo. She also mentioned, “Haryana has a rich legacy of producing some of the country’s top sporting talent. It is always an honour to represent the state every time I step onto the mat. I am delighted to support the Haryana Steelers as they similarly strive to make Haryana proud in the upcoming season of the Pro Kabaddi League.”
Haryana Steelers finished fifth in the previous edition of the competition which took place in 2019.
