CJ Patel Group General Manager Pranil Singh and FRU CEO John O'Connor.

CJ Patel have extended their sponsorship deal with the Fiji Rugby Union for another three years.

The new deal is worth $2 million

This was highlighted by FRU CEO John O'Connor at the launch of the 2021 Skipper Provincial Cup competition and the Inkk Farebrother Sullivan Challenge Trophy.

O'Connor says he used to pray all night regarding the Skipper Cup sponsorship and he is grateful to CJ Patel for coming on board once again.

CJ Patel Group Marketing Manager Ashwin Prasad says they have spent around $5 million to support local rugby since 2014.

It has also been confirmed that the format of the two local competitions will be the same as last season

Nadi will take on Rewa in the Skipper Provincial Cup and the Inkk Farebrother Sullivan Challenge at 3pm Saturday at Prince Charles Park.

In other matches this Saturday, defending champions Suva play Nadroga at the ANZ Stadium, Northland take on Naitasiri at Gatward Park in Korovou while Tailevu play Namosi at the Nakelo District School Ground.
