CHANNEL LIST iTV Network MD Kartikeya Sharma to launch Pro Wrestling League in India
MUMBAI: After kabaddi and soccer,
another age-old sport is set to go
professional in India. Wrestling will
get a much-need financial and morale
boost as iTV Network managing
director Kartikeya Sharma is
investing in Pro Wrestling League that
is set to develop along the lines of
the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) and
Indian Super League (ISL).
Sharma has formed Pro Sportify, a
company that will start with the Pro
Wrestling League. The company has
plans to expand in the business of
sports leagues not just in India but
The other stakeholder is Ashish
Chadha of Sporty Solutionz, a sports
rights management company.
Sharma is confident that Pro Sportify
will usher in a new era for the
business of sports in India. “Our
philosophy as a company is reflected in
our name Pro Sportify. Our approach
to uplift and transform sports will be
thoroughly professional, but there
will be no compromises with the basics
and essence of the sports. Moreover,
we will 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 will
remain the real deal for sportsmen,”
he said.
The Pro Wrestling League will be
announced soon.
“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. 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,”
said Chadha.
