The All Freight Logistics (AFL)/Puma Davuilevu Knights got a timely boost from Sports World yesterday.

This was after they received $4000 for the 2015 Vodafone Cup Premier Division competition which starts tomorrow.

The sponsorship consisted of Puma boots and training gear and team captain Marika Koro said the assistance would help them to play in the Top 8 competition.

“Sports World has been sponsoring us for the past two years and we are so thankful,” Koro said.

“We’re aiming to be in the Top 8 competition because we’ve worked so hard and trained hard to be here and we are prepared to do it for the club this year.

“But we know that will not be easy because competition has been tough especially with every team trying to come out on top.

“We need to keep focused and this sponsorship has really boosted the morale of the boys and this adds to our build up for the tournament on Saturday.”

It not always about rugby as the team is helping their community as well, explains Koro.

“This is also part of our community development programme encouraging our youths to be better leaders in the future,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sports World general manager Vinod Kumar said they were committed to helping the community.

“We value sports, the fun and joy it brings, the unity and the personal development and health benefits.

“We at Sports World are committed to building healthier and fitter nation by supporting initiatives such as what Davuilevu Knights are doing for their community.” Kumar said.

The 2015 Vodafone Cup starts tomorrow at Buckhurst Park, Suva.
