Netball Fiji this week signed an agreement with International Netball Federation (INF) to host the INF Netball World Youth Cup in 2021.

Netball Fiji president Wainikiti Bogidrau signed the agreement with Molly Rhone, president of the INF in the presence of the Minister for Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou, Fiji Sports Commission executive chair, Peter Mazey and the acting permanent secretary for the Ministry of Youth and Sports Alison Burchell in Gold Coast, Australia yesterday.

Rhone was delighted with the outcome and is optimistic of Fiji delivering a world class event.

“We are very pleased to sign the agreement,” she said.

“We have had a good representation from Fiji and we know that Fiji will do a very good job. We will be soon having a board meeting in Fiji where we are hoping to finalise more details to the agreement.”

Bogidrau said Fiji was excited as well as prepared to host the event.

“We do understand the responsibility now lies with Fiji to produce a top quality international event. We are looking forward to the challenge, and are confident of organising the event well,” she said.

“We are also excited for netball in the country – we know that it will further boost the sport, we are looking for younger and new players to come in and of course with Government support we will be able to deliver this event to the best of expectations.”

Tuitubou congratulated Netball Fiji on the signing of the agreement.

“Fiji yet again gets a chance to host an international event. This event will be a benchmark to encourage and attract aspiring young netballers to continue with the sport and achieve their aspirations by representing their country in the near future,” he added.
