The professional arm-wrestling competition in India, Pro Panja League (PPL) has secured an impeccable achievement in terms of viewership in its inaugural season.
According to the data from BARC, the league witnessed 32 million TV viewers, which was higher than the inaugural seasons of the most recently launched leagues in India.
The league’s unprecedented success was achieved across only two channels – Sony Ten 3 and DD Sports – emphasising the league’s appeal even further.
As per the BARC, the top markets in terms of viewership are Maharashtra/Goa, Punjab/Haryana/Chandigarh/Himachal Pradesh/J&K, and Assam/North East/Sikkim. The encounter between Kochi KD’s and Rohtak Rowdies on August 5, and the match between Kiraak Hyderabad and Mumbai Muscle on August 11, had 3.6 million viewers apiece.
Parvin Dabas, Co-founder, Pro Panja League, said, “The experience in the first season of the league has been overwhelming. The feedback we have gotten from everyone has been tremendous and it’s great to see so much of love being shown to the league, the players who are competing in it and the sport. All the detailing that we have been planning and working over the last few years has finally paid off. It is great to see that the fans enjoyed it and more importantly loved watching it on the TV.”
