Having narrowly missed out on making it to the final in Season 6, U.P. Yoddha will look to do one better in Season 7 and aim to hit the ground running in their first match against Bengal Warriors at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday, 7 pm IST. The test will, however, be far from an easy one considering Bengal Warriors, too, reached the playoffs last season and going into VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season 7, have a squad to worry any team in the competition.
The 12-team league is the biggest and longest professional sports league in the country. The new season will see all teams play each other twice in a double round-robin format.
Star Sports, host broadcaster and co-promote of Pro Kabaddi League, has assured a broadcast plan for No. 1 non-cricket league in the country. The Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 will be broadcast live on seven Star Sports network channels with simultaneous streaming on Star India’s video on demand platform Hotstar.
The matches in the 12-team league scheduled to start from 7 pm will be broadcast live on Star Sports 1 Hindi, India’s No. 1 sports channel for the past two months, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 2 HD, Star Sports 1 Tamil, Star Sports 1 Kannada, Star Sports 1 Telugu and Star Sports 1 Marathi. Hotstar will stream all the PKL Live feed.
