U Mumba team based in Mumbai, Maharashtra, has been a fixture in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) from its beginning. With the appointment of a new head coach and a determination to bounce back, U Mumba is gearing up for PKL 2023 with hopes of reclaiming the championship title. In the league’s second season, they clinched the PKL title and finished as runners-up on two occasions.
While U Mumba has a history of success, the past two PKL seasons have been challenging. They finished in the 10th and 9th positions, respectively, reflecting a need for strategic changes and a revival of their winning spirit.
To strengthen their squad for PKL 2023, U Mumba has undertaken a strategic squad retention approach. The franchise has retained nine players, including four elite players and an equal number of existing young talents. U Mumba has appointed a new head coach for the upcoming PKL 2023 season. Iran’s Gholamreza Mazandarani, with his vast experience and tactical understanding, will take over the role, bringing a fresh perspective to the team’s strategy and performance.
