Anshul Shah welcomes for good corporate sponsors to take advantage of huge electronic and
print media visibility of these events.

A Good Sponsorship culture shall promote the sports substantially in India, since there is a very
scant support by Government for the sport, as well as lack of infrastructure and training facilities.
This creates financial constrains to reach the next level at International arena in spite of huge
talent available in India.
