Rooster Chicken is the official Fijiana Drua sponsor
Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) is delighted to announce Rooster Chicken as the official sponsor of the Fijiana Drua for the current season in the Super W competition.
FRU Chief Executive John O’Connor thanked and acknowledged Rooster Chicken for coming on board at a time when it was really needed.
Rooster Chicken continues to strengthen its relationship with FRU after supporting the Flying Fijians during the two test match series against the All Blacks in July last year, becoming the official sponsor for match officials, the Stern Sponsor of the Fijian Drua and the naming rights sponsor of the Fijiana Drua.
O’Connor extended his gratitude to Rooster Chicken for supporting the Fijiana Drua who made a powerful start in the Super W Championship beating the Melbourne Rebels 66-5 in their inaugural match last weekend.
He added “We have signed a one-season deal with Rooster Chicken and the sponsorship will financially assist the team
. There is also a kind component that the team will utilize when they will be back in Fiji preparing for Rugby World Cup.
O’Connor added that Rooster Chicken takes the naming rights for the Fijiana Drua and the logo will be placed in the front of the playing kit for this year’s matches.
He added “We at the Rugby House are extremely grateful to the team at Rooster Chicken for their belief in women’s rugby and trusting Fiji Rugby through their sponsorship.”
Rooster Poultry General Manager Stanley Raniga stated that they are extremely happy to support the Fijiana Drua.
He said “Fijiana Drua needs as much support as the Fijian Drua in the inaugural season. We are proud to be sponsoring both the teams with our major sponsorship being towards the Fijiana. Fijiana Drua is a very strong team. We hope this sponsorship will empower our women to further excel in the competition.”
The Fiji Rugby CEO said while they hope Rooster Chicken extends their sponsorship deal next year they will continue to look for other core sponsors who could come on board and join the memorable journey of The Fijiana Drua in Super W Championship.
Fijiana Drua will now be called Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua.
