The ninth season of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) kicked off yesterday i.e. October 7 at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bengaluru, after a long wait.
Following the global pandemic, fans returned to the stadiums for a new season. Fans were treated with a triple panga on the first day of the new season, with Dabang Delhi K.C. and U Mumba competing in the first match, and Bengaluru Bulls taking on Telugu Titans in the second. The final game of the first day was between Jaipur Pink Panthers and UP Yoddhas.
Each contest in the first 66 matches is distinctive, and supporters will be able to witness all 12 teams engage in a game within the first two days. Through the league phase of PKL season nine, the audience will also be enthralled with triple headers every Friday and Saturday.
