Tamil Thalaivas, one of the newest entrants in the popular Pro Kabaddi League, is all set to spread the sport of Kabaddi across Tamil Nadu. Kicking off their year-round Kabaddi calendar in July, the Tamil Nadu based franchise will host a slew of on-ground activations that help further the southern state’s rich Kabaddi legacy. Interestingly, the name of the sport itself is derived from the Tamil word – ‘Kai-pidi’, which translates to holding hands.

Elaborating on the team’s mission, Viren D’ Silva, CEO, Tamil Thalaivas shared, “Tamil Nadu loves its sports and as custodians of Kabaddi in the state, we want to bring Kabaddi to every Tamilian. We want each of them to feel a sense of ownership towards their sport and their team. Through these year-long initiatives, we are also able to provide our strategic partners with continued visibility while connecting them with fans from all walks of life.” Read more
