Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ), through their Fiji Branch, was announced as Fiji International’s official Banking Partner yesterday.
Fiji International general manager Natalie Ritter said the sponsorship worth FJD$115,000 would go towards covering accommodation and providing meals for players and volunteers.
“This obviously goes into the tournament budget and things like players, accommodation for players and meals for players we will be providing which includes breakfast and lunch for the players throughout the week,” she said.
“We also have around 300 volunteers that we provide meals for and ANZ’s contribution goes towards helping covering those costs and also on tournament week, they will be providing mobile ATM cash facility for all spectators on course to have access to their cash needs.”
As sponsors for the Australian Tennis Open, Shanghai Masters tour and Netball Championships held in Australia, ANZ continue their support for sporting events.
ANZ chief executive officer for Fiji and the Pacific Vishnu Mohan said the addition of Fiji International will promote Fiji even further as a sporting destination
“We think it is a great initiative, as you all know this is coming with the full support of the government, given that more than a third of Fiji’s GDP comes from tourism, I think this addition will go a long way in helping promote Fiji as a golf destination combined with tourism.” he said.
ANZ will also benefit from the partnership as Ritter said they will be given a tee (hole) which will have the ANZ branding.
“ANZ will get a tee which will be exclusively theirs, so there will be an ANZ branding on that hole, when it comes to broadcast, that hole and the ANZ brand will be broadcasted every time that whole is filmed and players are on that hole.
“On top of that we have a range of corporate hospitality, functions, dinners and experiences that any sponsor of the event gets access to.” she said.
Entries into the tournament are now closed and players will be sorted out by ranks into their respective categories.
The Fiji International golf tournament starts on August 14 at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.
