Kabaddi World Cup 2020


World kabaddi cup 2020 will start on 9 February 2020 and lasts until 16th February 2020 in Pakistan. Earlier World Cups in Kabaddi was held from January 12 to 19th. They had to change the dates because of the cold weather in Punjab.

This is the First time the World Cup in Kabaddi gets held outside India. Six times earlier have India hosted the Kabaddi World Cup and they won all 6 times. All the matches will take place in Lahore, Gujrat, and Faisalabad in Pakistan.

You can be sure that a lot of sites will offer kabaddi betting during the World Cup.
