COVENTRY will soon be getting its own British Kabaddi league team, Council chiefs have confirmed.

The Council and the British Kabaddi League have announced there will be a new Coventry-based team with a city-themed name along with a logo and bespoke kit.

The event will be hosted at AT7 and will take place between May 3-5.

The League will visit various parts of Coventry and organise events to conduct talent searches, to identify who has the potential to excel in the world of Kabaddi.

Matches the Coventry team will take part in are to be broadcast live on BBC iPlayer.

Trials to be a part of the team will take place on February 10 between 12.30pm and 2.30pm at Centre AT7.
