Exciting revelations were made today at the Fiji Rugby Union Special General Meeting which took place at the Novotel Convention Centre.

The SGM was specifically called to discuss matters concerning the Governance and structure of the organization particularly the new company to be formed and called the Fiji Rugby Union Limited that will pave the way for the organization and sport in the next 30 years and beyond.

Under the new structure, FRU Chairman Mr. Peter Mazey says the new company will work alongside the organization charity which will act as its watchdog.

“The Drua and Counter Ruck, our 49% ownership of that entity will come under the charity just like our properties that includes Rugby House and the High-Performance Units, “shared Mazey.

Under the new structure, the Unions will now vote in their nomination for board members and their will be no longer be a Government or a Prime Ministers nominee, and no World Rugby nominees that will sit on the board. The new structure focuses on giving power to the Unions to move the sport a more commercial focused entity.

Mazey added that under the new structure that was passed by the Union representatives, the High-Performance Unit will now come under the Chief Executive Officer.

A new board of directors and chairman will be elected at the Fiji Rugby Annual General Meeting that will be called within the next 45 days.
