The RPSG Group (RPSG) and the Virat Kohli Foundation (VKF) have joined hands to organise a charity golf tournament, as part of their sports development initiatives.
The two have collaborated as co-promoters on this annual event which will feature corporate executives and celebrity golfers teaming and competing in a day-long event called the RP-SG Invitational Celebrity Golf Tournament.
Star Sports has been finalised as the broadcasting partner for the event. Interestingly, this will be one of the only golf events to be aired on the Star India network, since Sony Ten Golf owns most of the properties in the market.
“The objective is to create an opportunity for like-minded corporates to come together for the betterment of sport in the country. Golf is a great platform to achieve this. Most CEO’s and decision makers within the corporate fraternity play golf recreationally and this was a chance to bring them together to work towards a common challenge,” explains Anirudha Thammanna, GM, intellectual properties at Cornerstone.
