Fiji Rugby renews $2m sponsorship

The Fiji Rugby Union has again partnered with CJ Patel Group of Companies and secured $2 million in sponsorship for provincial rugby competition for the next three years.

The renewed agreement includes sponsorship for Skipper Provincial Cup, INKK Fiji Rugby Farebrother Challenge and the Fiji Rugby Bainimarama Shield Challenge.

“We are thankful that during this trying time, we have been able to reach an agreement with CJ Patel and we have been in partnership for the last seven years and also verbally agreed to continue negotiations after the next three years," Fiji Rugby chief executive John O'Connor.

“As part of the sponsorship, CJ Patel has agreed to the acquirement of a new Championship Trophy which we will source from overseas to reflect the long partnership we have had, the new INKK Fiji Rugby Farebrother Challenge trophy which we unveiled today.”

“We are so grateful that the signing of the sponsorship has allowed us to maintain the same level of grants we release to the unions. This is a great blessing for Rugby in Fiji amidst the challenges of COVID-19.”

The senior men’s winner in the 2021 Fiji rugby Skipper Provincial Cup will be awarded $30,000 and runner up $15,000.

The Under 19s winner will walk away with $5,000 while runner up will receive $2,000.
