As the Prokabaddi season 6 is approaching near, the teams are set with their strategy this year. After 5 years of experience no teams are looking to take chances.
In order to be the best, they have retained their best player for the upcoming season. Marking the first milestone for season VI, a total of 21 players from Season V were retained by their respective franchises. The “Elite Player Retention” framework is a key constituent to build team continuity for the longer term and the franchises were thus encouraged to retain key players of their choice for the upcoming season.
Anupam Goswami, League Commissioner, VIVO Pro Kabaddi said, “The League is strongly in favour of team stability and instituting it at a policy level to enable strong team structures. The player retention framework has been strengthened to encourage continuity and a longer term association between player and franchise, to the benefit of both. Squad talent, formation and development have always been top priority for us. Interventions like “Elite Player Retention” and the “Future Kabaddi Heroes” programme will go a long way towards ensuring that VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season VI offers the highest level of talent and competition for India’s own sport.”
