India's Pro Kabaddi League started in 2014. This premier sporting event was inspired by the success of kabaddi in the 2006 Asian Games. Pro Kabaddi League has a franchisee model, and each team owner has paid roughly INR 1.5 crore to join the league. Pro Kabaddi's Season 8 was postponed due to the pandemic and was advanced to December 2021. Currently, all the matches of this kabaddi event are telecast by Star Sports, the sporting arm of Fox News.
