The 2021 Vivo Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) is just around the corner. We only have a few days left before the biggest Kabaddi league return after two years. Last year's PKL had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but the wait is over and the league is back with exciting matches to watch and bet on.

If you're thinking of placing bets on the matches, you can easily go on websites like bettingsites24.in to get helpful tips and forecasts on Kabaddi matches. While that could already help you on your betting journey, it's always a better idea to know as much as you could about the upcoming tournament. Look no further because we'll give you the complete rundown of what is coming to the PKL scene.

Like the previous seasons, the league will be a 12-team affair. The schedule of all the matches has already been released and we know that there will be 66 in total that will run from December 22, 2021, until January 20, 2022.

More About the PKL Matches and Venue

The matches will only be held in one venue which is at the Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel Convention Center. The teams will also be housed in the same hotel throughout the competition. The league decided that this is the best option to lessen the COVID-19 risks.

Based on reports, the teams will be given a floor to themselves to keep a bio-secure bubble intact. They won't be allowed to leave these floors unless they are permitted to do so. Aside from this, the people inside the bubble will be regularly tested for the virus.

Here are all the teams that will participate this year and the names of their captains:

  • Bengal Warriors: Maninder Singh
  • Bengaluru Bulls: Pawan Kumar Sehrawat
  • Dabang Delhi KC: Joginder Narwal
  • Gujarat Giants: Parvesh Bhainswal
  • Haryana Steelers: Vikash Khandola
  • Jaipur Pink Panthers: Deepak Niwas Hooda
  • Patna Pirates: Prashant Kumar Rai
  • Puneri Paltan: Nitin Tomar
  • Tamil Thalaivas: Surjeet Singh Narwal
  • Telugu Titans: Rohit Kumar
  • U Mumba: Fazel Atrachali
  • UP Yodha: Pardeep Narwal
