Fiji Rugby will go ahead with the Sullivan-Farebrother trophy challenge irrespective of whether they rope in a sponsor or not.
The competition regarded Fiji Rugby’s oldest-sanctioned tournament was left without a sponsor last month after Bank South Pacific chose not to renew their sponsorship in April, this year.
Rugby House’s marketing manager Tevita Waqairawai said the union was still optimistic of securing a sponsor.
“We are optimistic of securing one for the 2012 season. However failing we will still go ahead with the competition without a sponsor,” he said.
Waqairawai reasoned that the Farebrother is the Premier tournament of Fiji Rugby.
Nadroga are the reigning champions and will kick off their title defense on September 1 at Lawaqa Park according to tentative fixtures released by Rugby House.
As in 2011, the challengers will come from the teams who finished in the top eight positions in the 2012 Digicel Cup standings.
The Farebrother challenge runs from September 1 and culminates with the finale scheduled for October 13.
