Speaking about the importance of the tournament, Pawan Sehrawat of Bengaluru Bulls, said, "The Men's Senior National Kabaddi Championship is a very important tournament for us as it's the competition where we have an opportunity to excel and stay in the minds of the VIVO Pro Kabaddi scouts. A good performance in the Senior Nationals can help players better their position in VIVO Pro Kabaddi which will help them to further propel their careers."

Meanwhile, Naveen Kumar from PKL team Dabang Delhi said, "I am really looking forward to the Nationals as it's one of the biggest competitions for us. I have been training very hard for it and I hope to enthrall the kabaddi fans. The VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season 8 really helped us in training and getting back in action."
