Notably, fantasy sports applications like Vision XI and Parimatch are the sponsors of multiple franchises. Amul Kool is yet another company that is part of a couple of teams.

Also, in the last edition, Telugu Titans had the least number of sponsors whereas, teams like Patna Pirates and Bengaluru Bulls had more sponsors. This definitely has something to do with the team's performances and consistency over the years.

The sponsors and branding are likely to be improved for the upcoming season of the Pro Kabaddi League. We will have an official update regarding the sponsors right before the upcoming player auction.
