The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua has announced a three-year partnership with Palas Group, the popular car brand MG’s distributor that will be the official motor vehicle for the Super Rugby Pacific franchise.

MG, one of Fiji’s fastest-growing brands for small cars and SUVs, joins a proud Drua sponsorship vuvale while Palas Group provides a modern and diverse range of vehicles to meet the Club’s requirements.

Fijian Drua CEO Mark Evans says they are proud to welcome Palas Group into the family and their support of the team means they are well-served fleet-wise as they charge towards the business end of the 2023 Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific season.

Evans says the team looks forward to showcasing the MG brand proudly, from displaying MG vehicles at their matches to creating unique ‘carpool conversation’ videos on their digital channels for increased fan engagement.

He adds with the Fijian Drua’s global reach through dedicated broadcast and tens of thousands of fans at their events, they will greatly enhance brand awareness and excellent features of MG vehicles.

Executive Director of Palas Group Prakash Pala says this sponsorship is a first for their Group and highlights their commitment to the Fiji market.

He says the Fijian Drua is our country’s most exciting sports brand and they share the same passion as Drua fans for the team.

Pala says by partnering with the Fijian Drua and meeting their fleet requirements, they are glad to do their bit to help the Club with everything it needs to do well in their Super Rugby Pacific campaign.

Under the terms of the partnership, the Drua has acquired five MG ZS vehicles, an MG 3 hatchback, a Perodua Axia, two GWM Cannon twin-cab trucks, and a Volkswagen Caddy panel van.
