MUMBAI: The second most watched domestic league in India, Vivo Pro Kabaddi League owned by Mashal Sports and Star India announced the dates of sixth and seventh season.

The sixth season will begin on 19 October 2018 while the seventh season will commence on 19 July 2019. Both the seasons will maintain the 13-week format, consistent with the format of the fifth season.

In the last season, the league scaled unprecedented heights having expanded from eight to 12 teams and conducting 138 matches over a duration of 13 weeks. Withstanding intense competition, Patna Pirates, led by Pardeep Narwal, beat Gujarat Fortunegiants to clinch the championship title for the third consecutive time.

Season five touched new highs in terms of viewership records too. It was viewed by a staggering 313 million viewers with a watch time of 100 billion minutes, with the finals becoming the most viewed non-cricket sporting event on Indian television.

Vivo Pro Kabaddi League commissioner Anupam Goswami said, “The Vivo Pro Kabaddi season sixth window has been created to keep in mind adequate recovery time for the players post the Asian Games, and adequate preparatory time for Vivo Pro Kabaddi teams to achieve an ideal state of squad readiness for season six. The advance window for season seven will afford forward-looking preparation for squad formation and commercial strategy.”

International Kabaddi Federation president Janardan Singh Gehlot said, “Mashal has taken India’s sport of Kabaddi from strength to strength with Vivo Pro Kabaddi. We welcome the long term approach which will take it to even greater heights.”

In its fifth and most successful season till date, Vivo Pro Kabaddi league became the biggest domestic sports league and season six promises to be even more action-packed.
