PKL 2021 Schedule and PKL Player Auctions

The Pro Kabaddi schedule 2021 was set to start on July 24 after a year of absence. However, the sudden spike in COVID cases in India has put some doubts over the league while other Leagues like the IPL 2021 have been forced to postpone after the Bio-Bubble could not contain the spread of the virus amongst the players and other stakeholders.

The tentative start date of Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2021 is July 24, 2021.

The Playoffs have the top six teams selected where the top two players are directly promoted to the Semi-finals while the other four teams play two eliminators. The winners of the eliminators fill in the other two spots.
