The Maha Mumbai Kabaddi League is providing a platform for next-gen talent

(Sports news) The Maha Mumbai Kabaddi League is commencing soon and the trials for the league have already started on the 26th of May 2022 and will continue till the 4th of June 2022, followed by the second phase of trials which will be announced soon. More than 1600 players have registered themselves for the MMKL Trials, which are being held at the Sports Authority of India Ground, Kandivali, and the Indira Gandhi College Park Site, Vikhroli.

The Maha Mumbai Kabaddi League has become the talk of the town and has created a stir
among the entire Kabaddi community of Mumbai. The entire process, from the registration of the players to the payment of trial fees, has been completely digitised. The trials are being streamed LIVE on the SportVot app, and every single data point of the athletes in the trials is being tracked digitally. The MMKL trials have witnessed an overwhelming response from the kabaddi community.

The league is structured in a unique pattern. The players are divided into teams on the basis of age categories, viz., seniors, juniors, and sub-juniors, and the trials are conducted accordingly. This is the first time that a franchise in a league will have three teams in three different categories, giving men and women and players of all ages an opportunity to shine. At the end of the trials round, more than 500 kabaddi athletes will be selected for the final round of selection, which is going to be like an auction round. The process of selection for the second round is through the combination of on-ground ratings from the selectors and the digital data and videos captured during the trials.

Sidhhant Agarwal, Founder & CEO of SportVot, shared with us, "The vision behind the Maha Mumbai Kabaddi League has always been very clear in our minds. We want to create a mega platform for the kabaddi talent in Mumbai and, along with that, we also want to make the most use of the technology that we have developed to spread, celebrate and modernise the game across the globe! The participation that we have received for the Trials round and the general buzz around the tournament has assured us that the community was indeed ready, in fact, eagerly waiting for such developments. We are really looking forward to the next phase of player selections and the season ahead! "

While one of the players from the trials expressed, "This is the first time we have experienced such a professional approach and particularity in the arrangements, the digital process was also extremely easy, and frankly, it was really exciting to register online and also understand the whole player tracking and profiling process. And personally, the fact that the trial matches were streamed LIVE really boosted our spirits and made us realise the magnitude at which we are playing!"

The Maha Mumbai Kabaddi League will have its auctions round by the first week of July and the live action will begin towards the end of July. More exciting details will be coming out about the tournament in the coming week.
