Iran


PROFILE

The Iran national kabaddi team represents the Islamic Republic of Iran in international kabaddi.

Iran is a major force to reckon with in the world of professional kabaddi. The nation has a diverse and relatively long history in the sport and is one of few nations to have a professional league set-up dedicated to it. They have a strong presence in Star Sports Pro Kabaddi in India too, with Abolfazl M. Mahalli and Fazel Atrachali from the current national squad, who as part of Patna Pirates were crowned Star Sports Pro Kabaddi champions in Season 4. Meraj Sheykh and Mohammadreza Maghsodlou are the other noteworthy mentions.

The Iranians take the sport very seriously, and its similarity to wrestling – another sport that Iran is famous for – has helped the nation reach the finals of various competitions. On paper, Iran is the strongest threat to India’s chances of winning the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup.
