The Odisha government has taken ownership of a team in the soon-to-be-launched professional league, providing a significant boost to the Ultimate Kho Kho (UKK). The announcement comes just days after Odisha won silver medals in both the boys and girls Kho Kho categories at the Khelo India Youth Games 2022. The Odisha Sports Development and Promotion Company (OSDPC) owned team will be the league’s fifth franchise.
The logo for the Odisha Juggernauts, the state team for the inaugural edition of the Ultimate Kho Kho League, which will begin in 2022, was unveiled on Thursday. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik led government has not only hosted some of the country’s major sporting events over the last decade, but has also developed world-class multi-sport infrastructure. OSDPC will collaborate with leading steel manufacturer ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India Limited (AM/NS India) in Ultimate Kho Kho.
