Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) has joined hands with the Fiji International 2015 as they prepare for the tournament from October 15-18 at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course

The venture is to promote both sports and their development in the country.

Fiji International general manager Natalie Ritter said the partnership with Fiji Rugby, one of the largest sporting organisations in the country, was an exciting venture.

“We look forward to the opportunity of working with Fiji Rugby Union to increase the profile of golf and rugby in Fiji and provide more fan activities for locals attending the tournament,” Natalie said.

Vodafone Fijian 7s captain Osea Kolinisau and squad member, Emosi Mulevoro has been chosen to be the brand ambassadors during the four-day tournament which will include some of the world’s best professional golfers.

Kolinisau thanked the Fijian International for choosing them as their brand ambassadors.

“It’s a big sporting tournament for Fiji and it is really nice to be part of it, especially to lean a new sport,” Kolinisau said.

“I always watch golf on television, but to get hands on it, I might continue to play for it for life,” Kolinisau said.

Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer, Radrodro Tabualevu said, “We are pleased to enter a strategic partnership with the Fijian International, which is developing as one of Fijis’ largest yearly events on the calendar.

“We anticipate that our partnership with the event will deliver exposure to both golf and rugby in Fiji paving the way for a sustainable future for both sports in the nation,” Radrodro said.

As the Fiji International gains momentum, with many sponsors securing their partnership with this major event, excitement and anticipation is building towards the tournament.

American golf star and World Number 14 – Matt Kuchar has confirmed his participation for the tournament’s $US1,000,000 ($FJ2.176m) prize purse.
