The Pro Kabaddi League is a professional kabaddi league in India, based on the format of the Indian Premier League T20 cricket tournament. It is the first significant initiative of Mashal Sports and takes the truly indigenous sport of Kabaddi to new levels of professionalism. Within a short span of three years and four seasons, it has been largely successful in popularizing Kabaddi and bringing it to the masses. It not only benefits the stakeholders involved in the ecosystem of the game, but also the players themselves. A few PKL stars like Pardeep Narwal have grown considerable fan following and have become role models for the youth.
