Not only a sports enthusiast but also the brand ambassador for a premier Kabbadi league, Rana Daggubati is chuffed to be part of the history in the making. “Hyderabad has a great legacy with the sport. This team, therefore, is a chance to rekindle that legacy,” he said.
Elaborating on the team, he added, “I am confidently counting on Kamaljit and his team to make a mark in our very maiden season. The team proved its mettle in the preliminary camps in Chennai and Goa. HFC aced all of the seven friendly matches, remaining undefeated.”
Varun Tripuraneni, co-owner of HFC and who has been the COO of Chennaiyin FC and CEO of Kerala Blasters FC in the past, is elated with the club associated with the star. Talking about what the association means to HFC, he said, “Having Rana Daggubati associate with the HFC is a huge boost for the team and its following. What’s more exciting is to see Rana being so committed to building a strong team.”
The tournament that kick-started on Oct 20, 2019, will go on until March 2020. Each team will play a minimum of 18 matches, in the run-up for the coveted ISL trophy.
