The Fijiana 15’s has received a massive boost ahead of the test match against Wallaroos and the Oceania Championship with Fiji Rugby Union’s {FRU} long-term partners, Vodafone Fiji Pte Ltd coming on board to sponsor the Fijiana for the next five years.

The agreement sees Vodafone Fiji sealing the naming rights for Fijiana 15’s. The national team will now be referred to as “Vodafone Fijiana 15’s”.

FRU Acting Administrator Sale Sorovaki said they are extremely grateful to Vodafone Fiji: “Vodafone Fiji has been one of our most loyal and important partners for many years and today we have further strengthened our relationship with them. This significant support will put our team in an even better position to seal their first-ever win against Wallaroos next Saturday and assist them in preparation for 2025 Rugby World Cup.”

Vodafone Chief Marketing Officer Rajnesh Prasad said “Today, we come on board with the biggest commitment to Women’s Rugby in the country. We are announcing a major sponsorship for the Fijiana National Team for the next five years with a total sum of $3.1M.

15s team demonstrates our commitment to sports diversity and inclusiveness as well as our belief in the tremendous potential of our female athletes. By investing in the Fijiana 15s team, Vodafone Fiji has taken a significant step towards empowering women in sports.

“Vodafone Fiji’s sponsorship goes beyond the immediate benefits for the Fijiana 15s team. It sends a powerful message to our society and the world that women’s sports are equally important and deserving of recognition, investment, and celebration. This partnership paves the way for more opportunities for women in rugby, encouraging young girls to take up the sport and pursue their dreams fearlessly”, said Prasad.

Extending his good wishes to the team, Prasad said “As you don the jersey emblazoned with the Vodafone Fiji logo, remember that you carry the hopes and dreams of an entire nation. Your success will inspire generations of young girls to follow in your footsteps and continue the proud legacy of Fijian Rugby. With this partnership, we wish to usher in a new era of opportunities, recognition, and success for women in Fijian Rugby”.

The Vodafone Fiji logo will appear on the Fijiana 15’s jersey-front center and at the back of the shorts.
