Kartikeya Sharma, - Promoter - Pro Sportify 'Pro Wrestling League'

For India to succeed consistently in any particular sport at the International Arena, and if we are to have an even playing field for our Indian athletes, our approach to the sport has to be professional and world class.

We can succeed only if the respective sporting body, infrastructure, training and coaching processes, science and technology, equipment, talent and business acumen to build and market the sport, all come together, at the same time.

‘ProSportify’ is our earnest effort to bridge the gap in Indian sport, and catalyze talent to sporting glory. “Our philosophy as a company reflects in our name itself, our approach is to uplift and transform the sports while keeping the culture and heritage of the sports intact. We will focus on building sport in a 360-degree approach, which leaves all stakeholders, including the viewers/spectators and sponsors happy.

Our first venture is the “Pro Wrestling League”, which is being launched now. And I am looking forward to work very closely with “Wrestling Federation of India”. The league will give Indian Wrestlers, the much needed platform, to perform and give 360 degree exposure and will encourage them to go a notch above in their performance.

The style of Indian wrestling is also known as Pehlwani and the person referred as Pehlwan. Kushti, The traditional Indian wrestling takes place in Akhada for practicing the Indian wrestling, in other words the school of wrestling. Wrestling is counted amongst the most prestigious and oldest events in the Olympic Games, included in the Olympics in 708 BC. Indian Wrestlers have won around 165 Medals and 75 awards.

Wrestling, one of the world’s oldest sports, that has had a glorious past in India. The sport has brought our country immense recognition including the largest haul of individual Olympic medals. To ensure that wrestling as a sport continues its journey on the path of growth, brings more laurels and recognition to the country, and attracts youth from every corner, we are going to host these mega sports events.

Our company will have diversified interests in sports and leagues in the country with the objective of making India shine in the field of sports at the global level and usher a new era.
