The entire PKL season will take place behind closed doors at one same venue – the Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Centre.

“Bengaluru has all the facilities for the conduct of big competitive sports events with best safety practices, and we look forward to demonstrating this with PKL Season 8,” Mashal Sports and League Commissioner Anupam Goswami had said.

To keep the fans engaged, Mashal Sports has put triple headers for the first four days. Following that, PKL will return to two matches a day letting PKL teams assess the situation before the second set of fixtures for the tournament is released.
