Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 11 Heats Up, Check Auction Date and When Will it Start

The exciting news you've all been waiting for is finally here. The Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) is returning to its original schedule, with Season 11 kicking off in July 2024. But before the adrenaline-pumping matches begin, there's another crucial event to mark on your calendar- the player auction.

According to sources close to the PKL, the auction is expected to take place in the last week of May. This timing is strategic, as it falls right after the conclusion of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on May 26th. It also ensures a comfortable gap before the first match of the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled for June 2nd. This window provides ample time for franchises to assemble their teams and prepare for the upcoming season.

The auction is a significant event for PKL, setting the stage for the entire season. Teams will be eager to secure the best talent available, and with each passing year, the bidding wars seem to get more intense. In seasons 9 and 10, star raider Pawan Sehrawat emerged as the highest-paid player, commanding a whopping price tag of 2.26 crore and 2.605 crore respectively.

Traditionally, raiders have been the most sought-after players, with names like Nitin Tomar, Monu Goyat, Siddharth Desai, and Pardeep Narwal fetching the top bids in their respective seasons. It will be fascinating to see which raider or defender steals the show this time around and becomes the most expensive player in PKL history.

With the new season on the horizon, some teams have already begun their preparations. The appointment of new coaches like Krishna Kumar Hooda for Telugu Titans and Joginder Narwal for Dabang Delhi signifies the seriousness with which franchises are approaching PKL 11. Additionally, Tamil Thalaivas has also bid farewell to coach Ashan Kumar.

But the real drama unfolds at the auction. Here, strategies are formed, unexpected picks are made, and rivalries ignite. The high-octane bidding frenzy is sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats.

So, mark your calendars. The wait for PKL 11 is almost over. Get ready to witness exceptional athleticism, strategic plots, and nail-biting finishes as Kabaddi takes center stage once again in July. And don't forget to tune in for the much-anticipated player auction in the last week of May, where teams will battle it out to build their championship squads.
