Fiji Television Limited handed the Fiji Rugby Union $9000 for their share of the revenue earned from the broadcasting on Sky Pacific of the Flying Fijians two test matches in June.

Union chief executive officer Radrodro Tabualevu acknowledged Fiji TV for their partnership and pledged to continue with the relationship.

“Today’s a very exciting day for all of us at Fiji Rugby Union,”he said.

“It confirms that our aspirations are at least going in the right direction. We’re coming to terms with the fact that we are entertainers as we’ll have to compete with the attention of other programmes on the other channels that are on TV.

“We are mindful of that and the span of your coverage is motivation for us. We’ve got to try and get our product out so that people will watch us instead of the other programmes.

“That is the challenge that we are keen to rise up to and in this instant we are very happy with Fiji TV and we’re sure the media in Fiji is quite well developed to be able to partner with us and take the products to the people.”

Fiji TV chief executive officer Tevita Gonelevu acknowledged FRU for their partnership and looked forward to continuing their relationship up to the Rugby World Cup next year.

Fiji TV had broadcasted the Flying Fijians test match against Italy on June 7 and the 2015 Rugby World Cup qualifier against the Cook Islands on June 28.
