Yuva Kabaddi Series is India’s first year round sports tournament. India resonates with Kabaddi and every Indian has a story to share about Kabaddi. That is the premise for Yuva Kabaddi Series or YKS.
The tournament is focused on bringing the best out of the youth, and would be providing a platform for them, giving the much needed exposure which could also go on to help them with the experience of playing against the emerging players from various academies and Kabaddi schools.
Having a year round sports tournament would mean being able to track the performances of all the players throughout the year as the tournament is slated to be conducted across different editions in the same year, with the summer edition being the first in line.
The first summer edition of the Yuva Kabaddi Series will kick off in Jaipur (Rajasthan) on Saturday, 28th May 2022, with Maratha Marvels taking on the Aravalli Arrows in the opening fixture.
Round 1 of the tournament would be a Survival Round where a total of 45 matches are slated to be played across 9 days, wherein we would be seeing 11 teams, consisting of more than 150 players, battling it out with each other. Out of these, 8 teams would be qualifying for the next round.
Timings of Matches : 5 matches would be conducted everyday, with the first match being played at 10:00 AM IST, followed by 12:00 PM, 4:00 PM, 6:00 PM and the final match of the day at 8:00 PM.
Prize Money : The team which would go all the way would be winning a prize money of 20 lakh rupees, with the 1st and 2nd runner up also winning 10 lakhs and 5 lakhs respectively.
