HYDERABAD, India, November 28, 2011 -

Great Sports Infra, FieldTurf’s exclusive Licensee for the SAARC region, has been awarded three more artificial turf football field contracts: Rajiv Gandhi Stadium & Thuamluaia Huali in Mizoram and the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong.

Football fever is surely on the rise in India after the huge success of the 1st-ever International FIFA match held recently at the iconic Salt Lake Stadium between Argentina and Venezuela, featuring the world’s greatest player - Messi. The match was played on FieldTurf’s artificial grass and the surface received high praise from the players and notably the Argentine coach Mr. Sabella.

Mr. Anil Kumar, Managing Director of Great Sports Infra says, “We are delighted to have been awarded these 3 prestigious projects. This reflects the product quality and execution capability we have demonstrated in the past with SAARC region’s first FIFA recommended artificial grass field at Chowgule College in Goa (2005) and subsequently Salt Lake Stadium (Kolkata), Paljor Stadium (Sikkim), and Assam Rifles Stadium (Mizoram), to name a few”.

Mizoram Sports Minister Mr. Zodintluanga says “The entire project was executed professionally. Great Sports Infra showed great expertise in designing and constructing the sub-base and then installing the FieldTurf artificial grass, with sophisticated equipment. We commend Great Sports Infra for a wonderful job”.

FieldTurf President Eric Daliere says “Delivering the highest quality, superior performing and safest artificial turf systems has been our mission at FieldTurf from the very beginning. We are pleased that FieldTurf will be installed at these three renowned venues.” 

FieldTurf is a “FIFA Preferred Producer”. With over 160 FIFA certified fields worldwide, FieldTurf is by far the leader in artificial grass football fields.
