Siddhant Agarwal, CEO and Founder SportVot said, “The league turned out to be a huge success because it involved each and every stakeholder from the community, the athletes, the team coaches and team management and the sports lovers. The league brought together the community. Our team worked hard at each step of the journey but it couldn’t have been possible without the support of the fans and the players themselves. So we are extremely grateful to each one of them and definitely our sponsors who showed faith in us along the way. We hope to create more such opportunities in not just kabaddi, but many more sports and we hope to make the league bigger and better next season!”
