“Given Uttar Pradesh’s rich history in the sport of Kabaddi it was befitting for UP to have a team in the league and I am glad that the owners recognised this opportunity,” said Chauhan.

The team is being coached by former national player Jasvir Singh. Jasvir is a former Asian Games Gold medallist and was a part of the national squad that won the World Cup in 2016.
