Initiative was aimed for the public to be creative in showing their support and well wishes for the Rio Olympics.

 

Four lucky winners walked away with a total of $2000 prize giveaway yesterday. They took part in the Vodafone Fijian Under-23 Olympic Football Team Facebook cheer video competition.

Vodafone Fiji sales general manager Rajneesh Prasad said the initiative was aimed for the public to be creative in showing their support and well wishes for the Rio Olympics.

“Because it is such a significant achievement for Fiji Soccer to qualify in their first ever Olympics we thought it would be good to get all our supporters and the whole country behind the team. This is to show their support and patriotism for their country. This has been the idea of getting our online videos, for anyone who wants to participate in this do a video in terms of showing support to the team,” he said.

Prasad said the competition was a special one since this is the first time for our national football team to qualify for the Olympics.

“We received quite a number of videos online which shows who we are. The sevens team is also through to the Olympics and we have a separate campaign for them so we received a number of videos out of that we have chosen four winners,” he said.

The first prize money of $1000 was won by six-year-old Avishaan Chand, a year one student of Saraswati Primary School in Nausori.

“I will use the money to buy my books for school; my video is about the Fiji team going to Rio with Roy Krishna scoring a goal for Fiji,” he said.
