Big Principal Sponsorship Boost for Fiji Netball

Wednesday, 3 July 2019 – Suva, Fiji – Digicel Fiji and Punja and Sons are delighted to announce today an immense joint sponsorship of the Fiji Netball Association.

Both companies are excited to ink a new three-year deal for a ‘substantial’ investment after initially signing on as major netball sponsors in 2014. 

Mike Greig, Digicel Fiji CEO, said; “I am delighted to announce the Big sponsorship with our great partners, Punja and Sons, for the Fiji Netball Association. Our joint sponsorship will help the growth of the country’s single biggest female participation sport. I am excited that with Punjas we can continue to support Fiji Netball following an extremely successful partnership over the past three years.”

“At Digicel, we use the power of sport to encourage people to be more active, and we displayed this by supporting the successful Special Olympics team earlier this year to the World Games. This mantra is no different when it comes to netball, as our partnership is proof of our ongoing commitment, building depth and player development in the country.”

Gopal Jadhav, Punjas Group Marketing Manager, said; “We see great value in contributing to the success of netball across Fiji, and thank Digicel for being our continued sponsorship partner. Our combined efforts and wide reach across our islands can make a great difference to this important sport and the women of Fiji.”

“We hope that our support will encourage more girls and women to look to the sport as an activity that can contribute to a healthy lifestyle and their own personal growth.”

Ms. Shally Jannif, Digicel’s Regional CEO, said, “At Digicel, we definitely support women, and a big part of our management and staff are women. We are a company that believes in supporting the growth of women and so this is an ideal partnership with Fiji Netball.” 

“I would also like to take this opportunity to wish the national team well as they prepare to leave for the World Cup in Liverpool.”

Netball Fiji President, Mrs. Wainikiti Bogidrau said; “We are delighted with the extension of this partnership for another three years. Netball is currently in a re-building phase and we know that this sponsorship would ensure that our home competitions continue to support the development of the sport in general. We are proud to continually be associated with both Digicel and Punjas.”

The Digicel Punjas sponsorship will cover the National Championship and International series at home in addition to any other Fiji Netball organized local tournaments.
