Friday, 22 February 2019 – Suva, Fiji - Digicel Fiji, your fastest LTE 4G+ data network, today announced its support with cash sponsorship for the Powerade National Torch Relay which starts next week.
Digicel Fiji is proud to be associated with Fiji’s largest annual schools sporting event, the Coca-Cola Games for the third successive year.
Ms. Charlotte Taylor, Digicel Fiji Head of Consumer Sales said; “We are excited to be part of the largest sports gathering in the country and this partnership is a milestone achievement. This is the third year running that we are major sponsors of the Powerade National Torch Relay. We are proud telecommunications partners of Coca-Cola Amatil and our relationship stretches beyond that with many major joint promotions.”
“I would like to thank the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association executives and our partners Coca-Cola Amatil Limited in providing this unique opportunity for Digicel Fiji.”
“We are looking forward to supporting the Relay which will be going to various schools – to most towns, villages and communities in the country. This will give us a great opportunity to reach out to our customers in remote areas and provide them the chance to feel being part of the popular Coca- Cola Games.”
“We will also introduce a new cheer or school chant competition during the torch relay tour to keep the school spirit alive and capture the spirit of the Coca-Cola Games. All schools have the opportunity to participate and win prizes at the end of the journey. The winning school receives internet for 1 year and sports equipment for the school, this is a great opportunity for Digicel to give back to the schools through this journey,” added Ms. Taylor.
