Fiji Water will be the official beverage provider for the 2014 FIBA-USP Oceania Under-19 Basketball Championships with the deal being sealed by the company and Basketball Fiji yesterday.

In the official handover, FIJI Water chief executive officer Rokoseru Nabalarua stated the honour the iconic mineral water provider had in being involved with the tourney.

“It’s an honour and a privilege for FIJI Water to be involved in this international tournament. I know it’s brining in all the best players in the Pacific not only in the development of sport but also in the development of youth in this sport,” he said.

“So FIJI Water is always happy to participate whenever we are given the opportunity. I wish you the very best with the organisation of the tournament and wish every team the very best and we’re looking forward to see what’s coming in the next few days,” he said.

Basketball Fiji president Ioane Naivalurua acknowledged FIJI Water’s involvement in the tourney.

“Thank you for your kind support in recognition of the fact that basketball could help in the growth of our youth and the young generation of tomorrow and more importantly in nation building,” he said.

For this particular championship it’s quite an important one for Basketball Fiji and more importantly for national interest as you know. It’s an important opportunity for us to showcase the federation, showcase our beautiful country and above all showcase that we also have good players,” he said.

“We can assure you that your provision of water will be used well not only by the teams but by our friends that are visiting as well.”
