Vinod Patel and Home & Living have signed a new two-year deal with Fiji’s only home-based professional sports Club the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua.

The sponsorship will see both brands feature prominently on the goal-post pads for all Drua matches in Fiji.

Drua players will also benefit directly from this partnership, with Home & Living continuing its support for the Player of the Match award through its brand Hoover.

Fijian Drua CEO Mark Evans welcomed the extension of the partnership and says that this commitment will help the Club provide players with the resources they need to do even better in their second season of Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.

As part of their extended sponsorship, Home & Living through its brand Hoover has extended the Player of the Match award to now cover all home and away matches.

An independent panel of experts will select Hoover Player of the Match for all matches, with the result announced via the Drua’s social media soon after fulltime.

Meanwhile, Vinod Patel CEO, Rahul Amin says the Drua is our first professional sports club and we all must take pride in this and they are super excited for the second season.

Home & Living CEO, Jatin Patel says each Player of the match will receive a $500 Home & Living Shopping voucher.

The Drua will kick off its 2023 season on February 24 against Moana Pasifika at Mt. Smart Stadium in Auckland.
