Iranian kabaddi player Fazel Atrachali will go under the hammer as Pro Kabaddi League Season 9 Player Auctions will be held from August 5-6 here.
The Domestic, Overseas, and New Young Players (NYPs) will be divided into four categories: Category A, B, C and D in this Player Auction. The players will be further sub-divided as ‘All-Rounders’, ‘Defenders’ and ‘Raiders’ within each category.
Fazel Atrachali, who would be in action as the Overseas player, will be an athlete to watch as teams get ready to finalise the squad for the upcoming season.
The trailer for the upcoming auction was exclusively released on the Koo app, which features ‘Sultan’ Fazel roaring ahead of the mega event.
‘Sultan’ Fazel is known as a Tiger in Pro Kabaddi League. He is the number two defender who is available for auctions this season. With his deadly and trickest moves he is surely one of the strongest defenders to look out for this season.
“Sultan Fazel roars into the #vivoPKLPlayerAuction 2022 like a. Which #vivoProKabaddi team do you wish to see the defender in? @prokabaddi, Aug 5, 6:30 PM, Star Sports Network & Disney+Hotstar,” Star Sports India posted on the Koo app.
For the auctions, the base prices for each of the categories are Category A – Rs. 30 Lakh, Category B – Rs. 20 Lakh, Category C – Rs. 10 Lakh, Category D – Rs. 6 Lakh. The total Salary Purse available to each franchisee for its squad for Season 9 is Rs. 4.4 crore.
The Season 9 Player Pool has been expanded to 500+ including the 24 players from top 2 teams of the Khelo India University Games 2021, Bangalore.
