India’s potential as a football turf haven with Massimo Seghezzi

The Council by Nation of Sport

Release Date: 01/17/2019

In a first at Nation of Sport, we sat down with Massimo Seghezzi who is looking to help football in India solve its turf issues. Seghezzi is Director of the global artificial turf business of the Radici Pietro Group of Industries. This was his first professional trip to India; we sat with him and picked his mind on his way out.

Seghezzi was generous with knowledge on how to pick the right turf for a tropical climate like that of India’s, what lessons the evolving Indian football market can take from Italy, and why there is a huge difference between a turf that “meets FIFA standards” and “is FIFA-certified”
