Company Profile-Great Sports Infra

Pitch perfect


The Maldivian Government has offered a contract to Great Sports Infra (India) for the supply and installation of 35 Futsal Courts


Sports infrastructure plays a crucial role in a nation’s economic and social development. It is of vital importance in achieving excellence and in establishing a valuable identity in the global arena. With football as its national game and a national Futsal team already in place, the Maldivian government was in search for an ideal Futsal court with best playability, longest life and suitability for multisport and multipurpose facilities. 


This is where the choice of South Asia's leading sports infrastructure solution provider, Great Sports Infra (GSI), as a facilitator came into play. The company has bagged a contract from the Maldives government for the supply and installation of 35 Futsal courts (five-a-side football). The courts to be constructed will occupy a total of 1,75,000 sq ft in 35 different parts of the island nation.


SnapSports Interlocking Modular Sports Flooring reportedly turned out to be the ideal choice. SnapSports® is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of premium modular sports flooring for residential and commercial applications. The company’s multi-patent and patent pending modular sports floors are top rated performance and safe play surfaces in the industry.


Continuously engineering the most innovative products available on the market today, SnapSports is the official sports floor for the US Futsal Federation. It has been designed for Basketball, Tennis, Handball, Volleyball, Badminton and other sports, and is approved by their respective governing bodies like FIBA, ITF, IHF and USFF.


Robert Dougherty, International Sales Manager, SnapSports, is led to say, “For over four decades, delivering high quality products has been our mission at SnapSports. We are glad to see the rapid adoption of these surfaces throughout the world. These surfaces are ideal for amateur to international level play.”


Rupesh Tikku, Director-Sales, Great Sports Infra, commented, “We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious project. The work is going on in full swing and we have completed about 50 per cent of the project in a record time. We are confident that this project will set a benchmark and be replicated in other countries as well.”


Incidentally in the brief period since the introduction of such surfaces in the region an area of almost 6 lakh sq ft has been installed for the firm’s clients like IAF, Indian Army, J&K Sports Council, Hyundai, Dell, TISB, Jain International School, Manipal University, Gujarat Law Society, IIT-Madras etc.


GSI was the first company to introduce the next-generation artificial grass – FieldTurf and today, there are over 5,500 installations across 230 cities and towns in South Asia. In the 10 years of the company’s journey, they have installed over 70 lakh sq ft of sports surfaces and executed some of the prestigious projects like the iconic Salt Lake Stadium, Vibrant Gujarat (Mahatma Mandir), 35th National Games of India, Kerala, Govt. of Gujarat (SAMA), World Military Games, Govt. of Maldives, Govt. of Mauritius etc. The product portfolio spans across artificial grass for sports and landscaping, complete range of indoor and outdoor sports surfaces, synthetic athletic tracks, sports field conditioning systems and turf protection tiles. GSI is a winner of CII-Business Line ‘Emerging Entrepreneur’ Award 2012, Skoch Achiever Award - India's Best SMEs - 2015 and finalist of the prestigious TATA NEN Hottest Startups and ET-Power of Ideas.


Mohamed Maleeh Jamal, Minister of Youth & Sports - Maldives, says, “After extensive research and technical evaluation, we decided to go with SnapSports. GSI’s installation has been very professional and of the highest quality. We are very happy with the progress. Football legends like Ronaldo, Pele, Socrates and Zico honed their impeccable skills by playing Futsal. We are optimistic about the future and aim to be one of the best teams in the sport.”
