New Delhi: Star rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, who has purchased a team in World Kabaddi League (WKL), on Friday revealed that he has named it Yo Yo Tigers because he feels it will help people relate to it.

"I wanted to associate with a sport that I really believe in. So I bought a team in World Kabbadi League, and Toronto will host my team," Singh, who had also started Global Fighting Championship (GFC) in Dubai, told reporters here.

"I have named the team after my own name because I want to represent the game internationally. I know children and youth relate to me, so I feel they will support my team as much as they support me," he added.

The 31-year-old has also shared that he will give his best while promoting the team and that soon he will launch a track for the same.

"Watch and watch what all I do for my team," he said.

WKL, to be held from August to December, will have its first match in London and it will be a "first-of-its-kind league", said the singer, who loves Kabaddi since his childhood.

This year, there will be no bidding for the players for WKL, and they will be selected as per their performances.
