Details on UP Yoddhas’ pricing, live streaming, and player roster are provided

Like the Haryana Steelers, the UP Yoddhas haven’t played up to par. The Yoddhas have not made it to the championship game despite though they have advanced to every playoff round since joining the league in 2017 and had Dubki King Pradeep Narwal, the greatest raider in league history, on their side.
The best three performances from the previous season, in which they placed fourth in the points table, Nitesh Kumar, Pradeep, and Surender Gill, were retained by Yoddhas ahead of the 2023 auction.

They’ve made several wise additions to the team this season, including Vijay Malik and Gurdeep.

Players Retained: Anil Kumar (Raider), Mahipal (Raider), Sumit (Defender), Ashu Singh (Defender), Pardeep Narwal (Raider), and Nitesh Kumar (Defender).
