Profile

Owned by Ronnie Screwvala, U Mumba, the Mumbai based franchise of the Pro Kabaddi carved a niche for itself in the first season alone as it received a resounding response from millions of viewers who not only followed the team on television but also flocked to the stadiums in large numbers. Derived from the word Mumba, the name represents the mother island that gave birth to a mega city which is now known as Mumbai.

Led by captain, Anup Kumar, coached by Bhaskaran Edachery. as the Strategic Adviser, U Mumba consistently maintained its position as the front-runner with 11 games which included 8 wins and 3 draws. U Mumba claimed the second spot at the season finale after the final match against Jaipur Pink Panthers.

U Mumba is already gearing up for a powerful performance and is determined to win the Pro Kabaddi title this season. With the goal of furthering the sport of Kabaddi, the team’s parent company, U Sports is looking at constructing a first of its kind Kabaddi arena. The company also has an enabler program for young athletes to grow into professional Kabaddi players and runs a parallel incubation programme called U Mumba Future Stars.
