Pro Kabaddi League’s Pune franchisee unveils new logo

MUMBAI: Insurekot Sports, which owns and manages the Pune franchisee of Pro Kabaddi League - Puneri Paltan, has unveiled the new logo of the team.


The Puneri Paltan team is set to battle it out in the latest Pro Kabaddi League Season 2 with renewed vigour and strength. The new logo has undergone significant transformation to depict ferocity and vigour through its vibrant shades of orange and vermillion - colours that represent the Maratha culture in its truest form. The new logo has introduced a lion along with the traditional shield and sword that stands for aggression and agility through strategic attack and defense. These are traits that mark a true Kabaddi player.


To celebrate auspicious beginnings on the eve of the Maharashtrian New Year - Gudi Padwa, Puneri Paltan's new logo was formally launched by the team's new coach and veteran Kabaddi player and Arjuna awardee Ashok Shinde and the team’s captain Wazir Singh.


The logo launch was preceded by hoisting the traditional Gudi by Shinde, Singh, team manager Kailash Kandpal along with the captain and coach of Pune District Kabaddi Association and the Women Shiv Chhatrapati Awardees.


The Gudi was raised to welcome the Marathi New Year while embarking on a new journey with Season 2.


Kandpal said, “On this auspicious eve of Gudi Padwa, it is an honour to have our new coach, Ashok Shinde, along with the stalwarts of Kabaddi on this stage. It’s been a wonderful experience for all us in the maiden year. There was a great deal of learning that emerged in the first year. Based on this learning, we are now excited to step into season 2.”


“As always, Insurekot Sports is committed to express patronage and support to Kabaddi and we are gearing up for the forthcoming season which is likely to kick off in July 2015. On behalf of the management, I would like to wish our Puneri Paltan’s Coach, Captain and the team the best and lead our team to victory,” he added. 


Shinde added, “This is a proud moment for me to be part of the Pro Kabaddi League and mentor these young and enthusiastic players of Puneri Paltan. I would like to thank team management for this opportunity to give back to the sport that gave me so much. We will give our best to raise the performance bar in the forthcoming season.”


Singh said, “We are excited to play in the second chapter of Pro Kabaddi League. We look forward to learning a lot from Ashok Shinde and incorporate those into our lessons from the last game. We are training hard and will fight each game with full force.
