The Warriors have one of the country’s most successful business groups backing them, as they are owned by the Kishore Biyani led Future Group. The owners of Big Bazaar must be pleased with this particular foray into the sports arena as the value of their investment has nearly increased to 1000% of the original cost, a rise attributed mainly to the dynamic and riveting nature of the game itself and the narrative of it being an Indian sport in original form. Broadcasting revenues have shot up significantly and thus teams have become more valuable.
One place where the Warriors do themselves no favours is on the results side of the game. After all a team should be playing to win and the Kolkata based side have yet to deliver any significant result, They finished 7th and 6th respectively in two seasons in the league in 2014 and 2015. They have had win rates of 28%, 14% and 56.25% respectively in the first, second and third seasons of the Pro Kabaddi League. The overall win rate thus stands at a disappointing 38.63% for the Warriors in the documented seasons of the league.
The team is currently led by Nilesh Shinde and coached by Pratap Shetty and they will be hoping that their steady increase in win percentage continues this season. A win rate of at least 60% would be a good target for them given the conditions. Bengaluru Bulls team players 2017 is placed below.
