The Dubai Sports Council announced that it will host Dubai (Ultra Kabaddi League), which will be held for the first time in the country and is organized by Sporteify in cooperation with the Dubai Sports Council.

Set to take place at the Al Ahly Youth Club in Al Mamzar in Dubai from June 4 to 24, the tournament will see 112 players from 10 different countries form eight teams that will compete in 32 matches.

Kabaddi has exploded in popularity, with the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) emerging as the second most watched franchise sport in India after the IPL T20 tournament.

PKL had more than 200 million viewers for the recently concluded ninth season and kabaddi looks set to take over the UAE.

The Ultra Kabaddi League is organised by Sporteify in cooperation with the Dubai Sports Council.

According to Ali Omar, director of sports events, Dubai Sports Council, previous generations knew this sport and young people used to practice it, and the sport has significantly developed since, and has a federation.

An auction for players will be held for the event in Dubai in April, and as many as eight teams, each consisting of 14 players, will compete with each other in an electrifying atmosphere for 20 days.

Over 32 matches will be played. Each team will face the other seven teams to reach the top positions. As many as 112 of the best players will participate in the tournament, with many international players playing for their national teams.

“We will have top players from several Asian countries. However, if we find good players from other countries as well as the UAE, they are encouraged to participate,” explained Singh.

Omar expressed his happiness to host the tournament, which he said is a "new and distinctive addition" to Dubai's diversity for all segments of society. ”Our annual agenda includes organising and sponsoring many international and community sporting events."
