Season 8 of the League is set to begin from December 22 and will be played at a single venue, Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center.

“We are delighted with the response that we have received from brands across categories. The recently launched campaign, Jo Bhidega Woh Badega , has created a stir of excitement amongst fans and advertisers alike for the return of PKL after two years. The overall reception from advertisers is a testament to the brand value of India’s home-grown sport,” a spokesperson for Star Sports said.
