Swire Shipping has today announced the extension of its support as exclusive naming rights sponsor of the Fijian Drua for a further two years.
The company says this partnership reinforces Swire Shipping’s longstanding commitment to the communities of Fiji, and to aiding the development of local sporting talent.
Swire Shipping’s Regional Manager for the Pacific Islands Alex Pattison says they are delighted to extend their partnership with the franchise.
Pattison says as a longstanding supporter of sport in Fiji, they recognise the significant role that rugby plays in the nation’s culture and the impact it has on communities across the country.
He adds they are incredibly proud of what the Fijian Drua have achieved, both on and off the field, and hope that this ongoing partnership will give the Drua vuvale (family) the continuity and support they need to continue representing the hopes and aspirations of Fijians at the highest level of international rugby competition.
Fijian Drua CEO Mark Evans says nobody could have done more than Swire Shipping in helping and assisting the establishment of a new Super Rugby Pacific team in Fiji.
Evans says they are an outstanding partner and it is an absolute delight to have agreed to extend the sponsorship for another two years.
He says their brand is synonymous with the Drua and their support demonstrates a real commitment to the Pacific in general and Fiji in particular.
Meanwhile the Fijian Drua will take on the Reds at 4.35pm this Saturday in their final match of the the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific round robin competition to determine their fate this season.
Gates to the HFC Bank Stadium open at 1.35pm.
