Progress emerges from dreams and their relentless pursuit, and no man knows this better than Shri Gokulam Gopalan, for he is a man who believes in making dreams and mere vision take hold in reality. A true entrepreneur in every sense of the word, this extraordinary man has carved a niche into the realm of Indian business with his sheer willpower combined with his hardwork and dedication. Shri Gokulam Gopalan has left no major business field untouched, as starting from chit funds, he has ventured successfully into different ventures that included food and beverage, drinking water, health care, film production, hotels and restaurants, and now finally, he has stepped into the world of football with Gokulam Football Club.
Sree Gokulam Group’s first encounter in football was with Viva Kerala FC, where Shri Gokulam Goplan was one of the directors. The club failed to reach the promised land and Sree Gokulam Group backed out from the club to concentrate on other ventures. After almost a decade, the group entered into the world of football with a new club, which is now Gokulam Kerala Football Club. The formation of the club was a brainchild of VC Praveen, one of the board members of the club and son in law of Shri Gokulam Gopalan. VC Praveen, a footballer himself convinced the family to form Gokulam Kerala Football club with a vision to promote the football in the region and to be a top flight football club in India.
