The formal opening of the facility is being marked by the hosting of the 47th Senior Men’s Kabaddi Championship, Uttar Pradesh to be held from 19th February 2021 – 21st Feb 2021.

Yoddha’s biggest Indian stars like Captain Nitesh Kumar, local star Ashu Singh and star raider Surender Gill amongst others. They will be up against the challenge from Star Warriors represented Nitin Tomar, Patna Pirate’s star raider Pardeep Narwal and others.



Speaking on the launch of the academy and the championship, Col. Vinod Kumar Bisht, CEO, GMR League Games, said, “U.P. Yoddha has always believed that a strong foundation can provide the right direction for the growth of the sport in the state. With the academy, we just take a step further to actualizing that goal and the state championship as our inaugural event is the perfect launchpad for the same. Further, the all-star kabaddi match on 21st February will prove to be a major attraction and provide the youngsters with an experience of a lifetime.”

The academy is being launched with the sole intention of providing upcoming talent with an all-round training to become the Kabaddi stars of the future. It is equipped to accommodate 200 players at a time.

The facility further boasts of world-class training and practice infrastructure such as indoor kabaddi mats (4 mats can be accommodated), modern gym and outdoor has running track, mud and sand kabaddi arena and a full-fledged hostel facility.

Yoddha Head Coach, Jasveer Singh.

Head Coach of U.P. Yoddha, Jasveer Singh commented on the development and said, “We have had local talents who have represented U.P. Yoddha over the years but having an academy of our own makes our search for new talent all the more easy. I will be able to supervise the training of all who join our academy and this will majorly help in streamlining our process. I am hopeful that we will soon be able to provide a pipeline of young players not only for our team but also for India.”

The academy is located strategically on the outskirts of Meerut and is only a two-hour drive from Delhi. A metro connecting the academy has been proposed as well. The academy is surrounded by well- developed infrastructure and also has easy access to several hospitals and hotels.

We are looking forward to hosting all the young stars in the 47th Senior Men’s Kabaddi Championship.”
