TRK Global launched Turf 137

TRK Global launched Turf 137

TRK Global launched Turf 137 on Velachery Main Road with a launch party which combined glamour with sports. The launch event saw an exhibition match among the players of Chennai City FC with 5 players on each side. The glamorous ladies and gentlemen turned out in their stylish best and cheered for their favourite side. The match was followed by an address by the young Thirukumaran Roopkumar, entrepreneur and presenter of Turf 137. 

TRK Global launched Turf 137, Chennai’s first 5-a-side open arena football ground. The ground is a non-caged structure and has boundary lines, with 60 mm grass for an enhanced playing experience. Turf 137 brings the game the way it’s meant to be played, with a FIFA approved turf imported from Amsterdam. The state-of-the-art turf is located right on Velachery Main Road, and has amenities including a shower area, changing rooms, parking, etc. 

Turf 137 is presented by Chennai-based business mogul Thirukumaran Roopkumar. Entrepreneurship means turning a passion into a business- which is exactly what he strives to do – one field at a time. “Our goal is player satisfaction and we are not cutting corners to ensure that,” elaborates Thirukumaran. His brainchild, TRK Global is into Sports & Entertainment, Food & Beverage, Real Estate, Energy and Textile.

The entire process – from conceptualising, to ideating and executing, was complete in a matter of a few months, with the guidance and support of I Am Play. This is a flagship product of startup TerraPlay, spearheaded by Sai Sathvik, CEO of the firm. The platform is essentially an integrated network wherein football players in the city are made aware of ground availability, allowed to book time slots, invite players and even host games, among other things.

The young tycoon comes from one of the oldest industrial families in the city and is no stranger to hard work. “Even the sectors of my family business that I have worked in, are only the one’s that piqued my personal interest,” he avers, as he talks about how he spends time getting acquainted with each business.

The serial entrepreneur and investor has always had a nose for business, and honed his skills by observing his grandfather and father run the firms. 2017 sees him foray into a new venture in the sports sector- Turf 137, with his company TRK Global at the helm.
