Part 2 Schedule

Mashal Sports expressed their confidence that the second part of the PKL will be more competitive especially because of the rivalry week. During this time, the teams will be playing against other teams that are selected for popular sentiments and folklore between their respective hometowns.

After the rivalry week will be the play-off round and the grand finale of the season. The second half of the season will also have triple-headers every Saturday. After the season's second half, 33 more matches will once again be scheduled. All in all, the 2021 PKL will have 132 matches.

Mashal Sports CEO and League Commissioner Anupam Goswami talked about how eventful the PKL is. Goswami said, "A notable feature of Pro Kabaddi is that it offers the highest number of matches among front-ranking Indian sports leagues. This is a unique value proposition for its 12 teams, its athlete pool, as well as sports fans and sponsors in our country's sports ecosystem.

"The completion of 66 matches of the first half of Season 8, as well as the release of the next 33 matches, is proof of our commitment to this intrinsic value of Pro Kabaddi."

Dabang Delhi KC currently sits on the top of the ladder but it will be interesting to see if current champions Bengaluru Bulls will be able to catch up. Currently, the team sits on the third spot.

There will still be plenty of matches awaiting. Here's the full fixture list of the second half of the 2021 PKL:
