The Pro Kabaddi League – Know Everything Here
Some would view the introduction of a rural and indigenous sport on a posh venue as a negative move. Kabaddi has, however, been slurped up in a level that defies theory, as evidenced by its ranking as two leagues fiery on the popularity charts. Because it is an Indian sport (originating from Tamil Nadu), its popularity in this region of the world may be due to the fact that locals can relate to it. Pro Kabaddi League held two seasons in a single year, demonstrating the popularity of the sport. Let’s hope that from now on, the Kabaddi stars will soon be recognized in the same way as India’s cricket champions.
Pro Kabaddi League India – Rising Popularity
Since the PKL, female viewers’ contribution share to the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup has increased. The ISL was surpassed by the Kabaddi World Cup 2016 in terms of viewership. Among all sports, Kabaddi receives the most support from the younger age brackets—4 to 14 years and 15 to 30 years. Sports-wise, Kabaddi is the most popular in AP/Telangana, followed by Maharashtra/Goa and Karnataka. However, within that, Maharashtra/percentage Goa’s in the PKL is significantly greater than it was for the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup.
