Supratik Sen has stepped down from his position as CEO & Co – founder of U Mumba, the PKL franchise announced on Monday. Supratik, who has been associated with the franchise since its inception in 2014, has resigned with immediate effect.

Speaking on Supratik’s decision, team owner, Ronnie Screwvala said, “I’d like to thank Supratik for his immense contribution to U Mumba over the years. From playing his part in the franchise winning its first trophy in season 2 of PKL, to scouting young talents who have always set a benchmark in the league, Supratik’s effort cannot be quantified.”

“I would like to thank Supratik for his leadership and wish him the best for his future endeavours. He will always remain a part of the U Mumba family. We will continue to strive hard and bring the franchise back to where it belongs.”

Speaking on his decision to step down, Supratik said, “Over the last 9 years I have had a wonderful run with the franchise. I feel the time is right for both – U Mumba and me- to move in different direction. I would believe we both have been able to have an impact on the kabaddi ecosystem in the country. I leave with nothing but fond memories and relationships that I have forged for life.”

“I would like to thank Ronnie for giving me the opportunity to lead this franchise, the players and staff over the years who have all contributed to my success, and the special fans of this franchise. I wish U Mumba nothing but the best.”
