This season looks very promising for us and we hope to win the title. We as Puneri Paltan, are committed towards Kabaddi as a sport and intend to promote it right from the grass root level. Along with the players and fans here, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors who have shown faith in us and continue to support us.”
Commenting on the announcement, Deepak Hooda said “I am extremely humbled to be appointed as captain. I am grateful to the management for having faith in me. We are putting in lot of efforts to train and build our team. Our head coach is very insightful and guides us at each and every step. With this new team and continuous guidance from our head coach and mentor, we are pretty confident that we will give our best in this season.”
Mr. Ashutosh Khosla, President Sales and Marketing Force Motors said, “Kabaddi is an indigenous and popular sport followed by many of our customers in rural India. Power, agility and teamwork form the three pillars of this sport. Our Trax range of Multi Utility Vehicles and Balwan agricultural Tractors resonate the qualities that make this team a top level contender. We are pleased to be the principal sponsors of our local Pune team- Puneri Paltan. Given the team’s track record, we are hopeful for a spectacular performance. I wish all the players very best for this season!”
On the occasion, Mr. Anurag Vohra, India Business Head, Kirloskar Brothers Limited remarked “It’s truly a matter of pride and honour for an India-based company like KBL to be associated with a traditional Indian sport like Kabaddi as there is a natural commonality between the two. Kirloskar Pumps has been irrigating rural agriculture fields since 1926 and the origins of Kabaddi can also be traced back to the early 20th century rural India. Both embark a sense of “Make in India” feeling, and yes, both are representing Pune on the global stage.”
