England players purchased in the Pro Kabaddi League

Dabang Delhi, a Pro Kabaddi League franchise, purchased both Felix and Yuvraj during the Pro Kabaddi League Sesason 10 player auction.


In September 2023 England Kabaddi Union (EKU) put forward Felix Li and Yuvraj Pandeya into the auction which took place over two days on October 4th and 5th. Felix and Yuvraj were listed as overseas defenders and both attracted bids from Dabang Delhi for 1,300,000 INR each. This is roughly equivalent to 12,700 GBP. This made England the joint 3rd highest contributor to overseas players in the Pro Kabaddi League behind only Iran and Kenya.


Felix and Yuvraj were both instrumental in the 2023 Bangabandhu Cup helping England beat Poland and Argentina. Both also had great performances in the 2022 Bangabandhu Cup scoring tackles against reputable Asian teams such as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.



In 2023 Felix and Yuvraj attended Future Fighters Academy and Mohit Narwal's Kabaddi Academy in India to further improve their Kabaddi skills. They are now leading training sessions to spread their knowledge in England.


Pro Kabaddi is a professional Kabaddi league in India that has been running since 2014. It is said to have "revolutionised the sport of Kabaddi" as mentioned on their website. There are 12 teams in the Pro Kabaddi League and each team needs to pick a minimum of two overseas players and a maximum of four overseas players.
