Dabang Delhi KC is one of the eight teams that featured in the 1st edition of the Pro Kabaddi League. As the name indicates, the team represents the place of Delhi and is owned by entrepreneur Radha Kapoor. 

The team is captained by Naveen Kumar, who is also known as the 'Naveen Express'. The star raider joined the team as a younger through the programme but ended up as the most valuable player in the seventh edition. The star raider currently captains Dabang Delhi KC.

Talking about the owner of Dabang Delhi KC, Radha Kapoor has been a real trailblazer when it comes to the development of sports in the country.

She is the founder of the India School of Design and Innovation. She believes that she is a creative entrepreneur.

Radha Kapoor played a lot of sports while growing up and Kabaddi is one of them. Since she had played the sport for a long time, she is very keen on promoting it. 

One of the major aims of Radha Kapoor is to play a big role in the development of Sportainment in India.

Radha Kapoor is also interested in developing many other sports, and it is the main reason why we have Dabang Mumbai Hockey Club and the Dabang Delhi Table Tennis Club.

Her team won the title in the second edition of the Ultimate Table Tennis League. 

If you take a look, all her teams have 'Dabang' in them. In a recent interview, she was asked why all her team names begin with 'Dabang'. Radha said that it is a perfect fit for her team. 

"The 'Dabang' name stuck with all our franchisees as we felt it resonates with our supporters and fans," she said. 

She is also hoping to expand the "Dabang" brand to various other sports in the country.
