The second edition of the Men's Uganda Kabaddi League Season 2 started on January 5, 2023.
An enthralling first season saw Star Pirates KC stamp their authority throughout the tournament. They won 13 of the 14 matches in the league stage, losing just once.
Star Pirates KC went on to win the championship, getting the better of Jakana Super Bullets in the final.
This time out, the Men's Uganda Kabaddi League will be a 10-team affair as compared to an eight-team competition in the previous edition. Kampala KC and Masaka KC are the two new entrants, who will contest for the trophy with the existing sides.
As a result of the two new additions, the number of matches is set to increase too and hence, a total of 94 matches will be played as compared to 61 in the first season. The final contest will be staged on January 28, 2023.
