BY UNA MURRAY — General Manager of the Outrigger on the Lagoon – Fiji (FOR) Peter Hopgood announced on Tuesday, 20th March, the renewed sponsorship of the Nadroga Rugby Union Football club that has increased in sponsorship dollars and in kind, for both the Digicel and Farebrother competitions.
Peter stated that the first two years of sponsorship have provided a wonderful Fijian experience for guests staying at the Outrigger on the Lagoon – Fiji. Each week, we were able to take between 40 and 60 guests to each game, and the feedback was tremendous!
“The publicity generated in Australia has been phenomenal! Many guests coming to the resort are now enquiring about the rugby games that will be played whilst they are on holidays! Fiji rugby is the best in the world – fast, tough and entertaining! Why wouldn’t our guests want to come to the games?”
The sponsorship has also been a tremendous boost for the Nadroga Rugby Union Club! Last year they were the winners of both the Digicel and Farebrother Cups! Many of the players have also had representative duties in both the national 15’s and 7’s teams!
“The partnership between Outrigger on the Lagoon – Fiji and the Nadroga Rugby Union Club is also a huge boost for the local community! We have over 550 staff at Outrigger on the Lagoon – Fiji who are all proud supporters of the Outrigger on the Lagoon Nadroga Stallions.”
