To make this game more popular every year our country also organizes the VIVO Pro Kabaddi League. And the current situation is that it is one of the famous Leagues in our country. By knowing about this League other countries also start to organise their separate Kabaddi Leagues. Currently, Kabaddi takes a major step in Europe with the inaugural British Kabaddi League(BKL) to set to raid the isles early next year.
