the Spirit of Hockey

More than one Reason to be here!


The Kodava Hockey Festival, held this year under the
banner of The Kuppanda Cup is an annual thirty day
event held on the months of April and May. It is one of
the largest community run sports event of its kind in the
South and attracts over 200,000 visitors each year.

Starting in 1997 with 60 families, we aim to be
recognized by the Guinness World Book of records for
having 300 teams participate.

Drawing international exposure, Participants and
spectators enjoy the event due to the electrifying
atmosphere, unique festival experience, and a well run
competition with reasonable prize money.

The soul of our event is the family. We have created an
event that is fun and will entertain all ages in the
family. We pride ourselves on our culture and the
community we support. In order for us to do this, our
goal this year is to increase the number of supporting
partners working with the Kuppanda Committee.

Sponsorship opportunities to support one of the biggest
event held in Kodagu are many and varied. We have
several options in a tiered sponsorship proposal and
we trust it includes an option that suits you as a
sponsor.
Nestled amid ageless hills that line the southernmost
edge of Karnataka is the luscious Kodagu (Coorg)
region, gifted with emerald landscapes and acres of
plantations. Kodagu (Coorg), the thickly wooded
grandeur on the Western Ghats, is the most beautiful
hill station of Karnataka.

It occupies an area of 4,102 square kilometers (1,584
sq mi) in the Western Ghats of southwestern
Karnataka.
As of 2001, the population was 548,561, 13.74% of
which resided in the district's urban centers, making
it the least populous of the 30 districts in Karnataka.
Kodagu is well known in the world for coffee and its
"brave warriors". Madikeri is the headquarters of
Kodagu. Kodagu is home to the native speakers of
Kodava language.

Kodagu is considered rich with wildlife and has three
wildlife sanctuaries and one national park: the
Brahmagiri, Talakaveri, and Pushpagiri Wildlife
Sanctuaries, and the Nagarhole National Park, also
known as the Rajiv Gandhi National Park.
The Kodavas (anglicized as Coorgs) are a patrilineal
ethno-lingual group from the region of Kodagu
(in Karnataka state of southern India) who natively
speak the Kodava language. Traditionally they were
land-owning agriculturists with martial traditions.

By religion most of them are of the Hindu community.
The Kodava Hindus, are a non- Brahminical sect who
believe more in reverence towards nature and their
ancestors then in the strict following of the Vedic
Hindu principles. Kodavas were called Kshatriyas
based on their legendary descent, the rights they
held to carry arms from the ancient times and their
military traditions. They practice family exogamy and
caste endogamy.

Although there are a variety of theories as to the
origin of Kodavas, including theories of them being
either the indigenous inhabitants of their region, or of
foreign decent over two thousand years ago,
evidence has not been able to be ascertain these.

their young to take up sports as a part of their daily life
The Kodava hockey festival was started in the year
1997 with the intent of creating a platform in which
the different Kodava families can get together.
Realizing the passion of hockey in Kodagu, this
hockey festival became an event to bring Kodavas
together.

The love of the sport and the untouched talent
within Kodagu, generated excitement and
subsequently the tournament was first held at
Karada and called as Pandanda Cup attracted
around 60 families.

Rules governed that all the team members must
belong to the same family (surname) and
participate in a full hockey attire and women
could also be a part of the team.

Hockey Festival has attracted an audience from
far and wide. A 30 Day event gathering over
200,000 lovers of the game, the enigmatic event is
conducted with a lot of enthusiasm from each of
the organizing family. The Kuppanda Cup 2015,
would be the 19th Edition of this Limca Book of
Record event.
