With India becoming home to not just cricket, when it comes to sports, iTV Network managing director Kartikeya Sharma is all set to invest in a wrestling league.
With an aim to give the game a fillip, Kartikeya Sharma has formed Pro Sportify, which will first start with Pro Wrestling League and later expand into the business of sports leagues, not just in India, but globally.
Sporty Solutionz promoter Ashish Chadha will also be a stakeholder in the league.
According to Sharma, Pro Sportify will usher in a new era for the business of sports in India. “Our philosophy as a company reflects in our name – ‘Pro Sportify.’ Our approach to uplift and transform the sports will be thoroughly professional, but there will be no compromises with the basics and essence of the sports. We will also keep the culture and heritage of the sport intact. This philosophy will also reflect in our first venture Pro Wrestling League, which in spite of all commercial exploitations shall remain the real deal for sportsmen,” said Kartikeya Sharma.
“I thank Kartikeya from the core of my heart for his whole-hearted support for the cause of sports in India. Professionalism in any industry does not mean minting money. It’s about creating more opportunities for each constituent of that particular industry and that is what we are going to do in Pro Sportify. Betterment of sportspersons, more opportunities and positive gains to our associates and more excitement, fun and sporting innovations for the fans will be a continuous process in Pro Sportify,” added Ashish Chadha.
