Rajagiri Business League is a student-led flagship basketball tournament jointly hosted by Rajagiri Business School (RBS) and Rajagiri College of Social Sciences (RCSS) every year. It set its sail for the first time in February 2017, and was the first of its kind in South India to bring corporate teams and B-Schools from diverse backgrounds on a common platform. From its inception, RBL has grown leaps and bounds. For the first three editions of RBL, corporates and B-schools have participated side by side to win the contest. Last year, RBL expanded further to include women’s matches as well. The 3rd edition, RBL-2019 witnessed the nail-biting battle between corporate teams in both Men’s and Women’s categories with TCS Bengaluru (Men) and Infosys (Women) emerging as the title winners.
Rajagiri Business School, an institution well known for its CSR activities, hosted the first ever exhibition match of the National Women’s Wheel-Chair Basketball team members, as part of the second edition of RBL. As a part of third edition in 2019, an exhibition match was conducted involving YMCA Special School children, a team of specially abled students who mesmerized the crowd with their grit and enthusiasm at the Rajagiri Hill Campus, Kalamassery, Cochin.
The number of corporate participants is steadily increasing every year. The upcoming fourth edition of Rajagiri Business League, RBL 2020, would be an exclusive corporate event with teams competing for the coveted trophy in both Men’s & Women’s categories. The matches in this national level tournament are designed in a knock out-format and will be held from 16th to 18th of January, 2020. It would undoubtedly boost the spirits high of both the players and the crowd, which makes it one among the most enthralling sporting events to look forward to.
