Following a two-year hiatus, the Pro Kabaddi League will return to television screens and the mat on December 22nd. This year, unlike previous years, the tournament will not be held in many cities. The entire league will take place in Bengaluru, with the players contained in a bio-bubble and no fans allowed inside the stadium. Because the league will be two months long instead of three, squad depth, rotations, and injury management will be significantly more crucial this time. In its previous seven editions, the PKL has been a fiercely contested competition, with no side other than Patna Pirates winning the title more than once. Furthermore, the champion of each of the previous three seasons has been different.
Season 8 of the Pro Kabaddi League will commence on December 22nd, 2021. Fans can now watch their favourite kabaddi players compete LIVE on the Star Sports network and Disney+ Hotstar. Due to the COVID-19 constraint, the multi-city setup will be avoided during the eighth period of PKL 2021.
The Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel and Convention Center will organize all Pro Kabaddi League 2021 Season 8 league matches without any people participating.
Government-mandated COVID-19 insurance rules will likewise be followed, and specific offices have been utilized for wellbeing and upholding the essential cleanliness all through the association. A biosecure air pocket will be maintained throughout the season, and extensive testing will be performed to ensure the highest level of safety.
Starting 7 Predictions of Patna Pirates:
Patna Pirates are the most successful team in the Pro Kabaddi League, having won three consecutive titles. Patna Pirates, a squad with top-tier raiders and outstanding defenders, are the only team to have won the league title three times. After reaching the semi-finals in the first two seasons, Patna Pirates won three consecutive games in Pro Kabaddi Seasons 3, 4, and 5. However, Pardeep Narwal’s side’s surprising departure in the league stage of Pro Kabaddi Season 6 drew a lot of criticism.
They will try to recover and regain their winning ways ahead of Pro Kabaddi Season 7. Here is a look at the Patna Pirates’ expected starting lineup.

Starting 7 Predictions of Tamil Thalaivas:
Tamil Thalaivas have always had a strong squad in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), yet they’ve finished last in every season so far.
The Pro Kabaddi League has announced the addition of the Chennai-based franchise ahead of the league’s fifth season. The Thalaivas signed major personalities like Ajay Thakur, Jasvir Singh, Amit Hooda, Rahul Chaudhari, Mohit Chillar, Manjeet Chillar, Shabeer Bappu, and others during the previous three seasons, but they didn’t live up to the hype. Ahead of the PKL Auction 2021, the Tamil Thalaivas have released the majority of their important players. They sought to put together a new team at the auction, and on paper, they appear to be one of the best Pro Kabaddi teams this season.
