It is the oldest game in Asia, having originated in India over 4,000 years ago. Exactly who invented the game, we do not know, but it is known that it was not always just entertainment. It was originally used to train the strength and stamina needed for work and daily life, and also for self-defence.
By 1918, kabaddi had become the national team game in India. But unified rules were formulated and adopted much later, after 1923. The popularity of the game became immense and in 1990 it was included in the Asian Games, making its debut in Beijing.
Since 2014, a new wave of development of the game began. This involved the formation of the first professional league called the Pro Kabaddi League. Today it comprises eight teams. The league was initiated by businessmen who saw potential in the league. They recruited players through an auction process and within just a couple of days, the national teams were formed.
The matches are regularly broadcast on television, attracting huge crowds of fans. It is logical to assume that the betting market for this sport is enormous.
