It is well-known that the appointment of administrators at Convers Sports Initiatives (CSI) has had a dramatic impact upon Portsmouth Football Club. What is unknown to most, however, is that CSI is the majority shareholder in PowerPlay Golf, the ‘risk and reward’ two-flag game of golf that was launched so successfully at Celtic Manor in May. Indeed Vladimir Antonov, chairman of CSI, was quoted in GBN.com only in March.
As a televised concept the PowerPlay Golf formula has proved its worth both in the UK and the United States, where reactions from golf fans have been very positive. We are confident that the company can attract the new investment that it needs.
