Right People Needed: Elesi

Elesi Ketedromo says volleyball needs the right people to help it grow.

The Fiji Volleyball Federation president said the sport needed people who had knowledge on marketing and sponsorships.

Last Wednesday, Team Fiji chef de mission Cathy Wong dropped both the men’s and women’s teams because of funding issues.

The Chinese Embassy came to their rescue last Friday and donated $37,000 which will now enabled the teams to participate in PNG.

“We need to identify those with marketing and sponsorships expertise to join the team and this is something we will work hard on.”

The same thing happened in 2013 where the men’s team could not travel to the Mini Games in Wallis and Futuna because of lack of funding. Ketedromo thanked the Prime Minister’s Office for supporting them.

“We are thankful to the Chinese Embassy through the Prime Minister’s office.

“We will also see that this does not happen again in future.”
