New Delhi: The ‘Pro Panja League’ (PPL) co-founders Parvin Dabas and Preeti Jhangiani have announced Indira Gandhi Indoor (IGI) Stadium, New Delhi, as the venue for the inaugural edition of the league.

A representative from Mumbai Muscle owner Punit Balan’s Group, Ragini Ghai and Hyderabad franchise owner Gautam Reddy were also present on the occasion.

Asia’s biggest arm-wrestling promotion, ‘Pro Panja League’, will premiere on Sony Sports Network from July 28. With the final set to take place on August 13th, the 17-day sporting event is touted to take armwrestling across India to the next level and revolutionise globally.

Speaking on the occasion, Parvin said, “I have been born and brought up in New Delhi and the city is in my blood. This is where I was born and this is where we wanted to host our inaugural edition. We chose Panja as a sport because we wanted to give a platform to our Indian armwrestlers. It is also a sport which we all can associate with and we have played at least once in our life. The sport is thrilling, fast-paced and it is a combat sport which fits with mindset of Indian audience. We already have a massive following on the social media and we are excited to translate the same on TV and livestream.”

Preeti Jhangiani added, “Our primary aim to begin Pro Panja League was to ensure that a sport armwrestling, which we all are aware of, gets the attention that it deserves. You saw an armwrestling match right now and you saw the thrill, the passion and the determination among these athletes to prove themselves. We are excited for the product and we cannot wait to show the audience what we have created through hardwork over the past couple of years.”

The ‘Pro Panja League’ is a professional arm-wrestling tournament in India, founded by Swen Entertainment in 2020.
