KBD Juniors Season 2 trials are back. After a highly successful season 1 of KBD Juniors that saw an impressive 156.4 million viewers tune in, in 2017, the league is back with its season 2. In a bid to nurture and hone the skills of the upcoming future generation of Kabaddi players, the league has expanded immensely, sending out invites to 288 schools across the country, up from the 96 schools who took part in season 1. With the league panning 12 cities over the under 15 and under 17 category (boys and girls), the competition will be fiercer than ever at the trials which commenced on October 22 starting in Haryana.
Coming back to KBD Juniors Season 2 trials, growing leaps and bounds, Kabaddi has taken the country over like a storm. Encouraging youth to take up a sport in which India has been traditional warhorses; Star Sports came up with the unique concept of a junior league akin to the Pro Kabaddi league. The junior tournament will have 24 schools per city and 3,500 students between the age group of 11 to 12 years battle it out to make it to the grand finale to be played on the 20th of July, 2019.
To ensure maximum participation from schools across the 12 cities, the invitational tournament has been designed as city qualifiers, city finals and national finals with the team finishing first in the city qualifiers making it to the round of city finals, which will take place during the home leg of each city as part of Season VI of Vivo Pro Kabaddi and then the national finals.
Players selected at the trials in each of the 12 cities will be offered an incredible opportunity to undergo an extensive training camp lasting two months that will see them learn from some of the biggest and best names in Kabaddi. To prepare the schools for the tournament, Star Sports along with Mashal Sports Pvt. Ltd. who are also the league organisers, will provide initial training to the PE teachers in each school along with an introductory kit that will also include a meet and greet with coaches.
Season 2 of the KBD Juniors will be covered and broadcasted by the Star Sports Network with the matches being telecasted on Star Sports 1, Hindi/HD.
