$10K Boost for Fiji Hall of Fame

 

Bank South Pacific (BSP) has increased their sponsorship by $5000 towards the Fiji Sports Hall of Fame and Fiji Olympic Order event.

Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) received a $10,000 cheque from BSP in Suva yesterday. This is to help with the organising of the Fiji Sports Hall of Fame and Fiji Olympic Order event which will be held at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa in Nadi on March 31.

Handing over the cheque was BSP general manager Human Resources, Howard Politini who is a strongly believer in sports and development.

“We feel great to be involved in sports in this country, sports and development means a lot in the world today and so we believe in supporting our athletes, administrators and officials,” he said.

“The gold medal win last year from Rio reminded us how much sports means to the country.”

FASANOC chief executive officer Lorraine Mar acknowledged BSP for their kind gesture and has also urged various sporting federations to submit their nomination forms.

“We are really grateful to BSP for coming on board and sponsoring us. They have been giving us $5000 in previous years but this year they have increased the amount to $10,000.

“We are urging various sporting federations to give in their nominations for the Fiji Hall of Fame and Olympic Order there are many athletes out there that deserves to be recognised,” Mar said.

Fiji Sports Hall of Fame and Fiji Olympic Order event will be held in conjunction with the Oceania National Olympic Committee general assembly.
