The Flying Fijians have secured sponsorship from Vodafone Fiji ahead of the commencement of their Northern Tour matches.
Vodafone Fiji has had a long partnership with Fiji Rugby Union through sponsorship dating back to the 90's when it launched into the Fiji market.
Vodafone Fiji’s Chief Marketing Officer Rajnesh Prasad says as a brand, they are looking at ways to reach out to the customers and bring their purpose to life in a more contemporary way.
“Our purpose is to support the much-loved sport that unites Fijians as a country, brings Joy to Fijians and helps develop future Flying Fijians talents who will become professional rugby players and give back to the family and their country.”
The new partnership with the Flying Fijians is a Shoe In relationship with Vodafone’s genuine commitment to the sport that was forged many years ago but now rekindled through the impact of this current Pandemic through a timely helping hand.
Fiji Rugby Union chief executive John O’Connor extended his gratitude to Vodafone Fiji for the generous support towards the November Tour.
“With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we at Fiji Rugby are extremely grateful to the team at Vodafone Fiji for their loyalty and ongoing trust through sponsoring the Flying Fijians for the Northern Tour.”
“We are delighted that Vodafone has come on board to sponsor the Flying Fijians for the Northern Tour in our time of need which will assist us to meet our relevant commitments for the Northern tour.”
As part of the sponsorship, the Flying Fijians will be known as the Vodafone Flying Fijians during the Northern Tour and will take up the front of the Flying Fijians jersey.
The Flying Fijians will take on Spain at 2am at Estadio Central UC, Madrid on Sunday.
