BENGALURU BULLS have shifted Pro Kabaddi League season 5 home matches to Nagpur. Earlier the Bengaluru franchise was scheduled to hold home games at Kanteerava Stadium, however, after failing to get permission for the same, the matches will now be played at Nagpur’s Mankapur Indoor Stadium.
The Bulls were scheduled to play in the city between August 4 and 10. But there has been a last minute change in venue due to the unavailability of Kanteerava Stadium. As reported by PTI, the franchise expressed its disappointment and stated,
“We are very disappointed to announce that Bengaluru Bulls will not be playing in their home turf this season. We have not yet received necessary permissions to host the matches on the required dates despite our incessant efforts. We shall come back next year and play on our home turf hopefully, keeping the excitement and thrill of the tournament intact. Despite not playing in Bengaluru this season, we look forward to the immeasurable support from all our fans which will help motivate the team and keep their morale high as we take a step forward in our journey in an effort to lift the Cup in this fifth season of the Pro Kabaddi League.”
The Bulls will play their first match of season 5 against Telugu Titans on July 30.
