FRU secures historic partnership with ISC. Flying Fijians wear new outfits in today’s Test clash against the Wallabies

The Fiji Rugby Union in another milestone achievement yesterday announced their new partnership with top kit supplier International Sports Clothing (ISC).

The announcement officially ends FRU’s arrangements with their former kit supplier, BLK.

In the confirmation of the partnership in Melbourne, Fiji Rugby Union board chairman Commander Francis Kean highlighted that this is another achievement in the endeavour of the board to move rugby in the country forward and into professionalism.

“We’re excited to partner ISC,” Kean said.

“They are well known in Rugby League, Super League and AFL but we are the first rugby union team to partner with ISC.”

Kean also thanked Velocity Brand Management (VBM) for going through the process with FRU until the official announcement yesterday.

The partnership will include the supply of all kits for all FRU international teams and also provincial teams.

“We are pleased that there is a good cash amount and also FRU will receive royalties for all kits sold,” Kean added.

VBM, FRU’s licensing and merchandising consultants are now finalising arrangements to licence distributors in Fiji and globally to sell all the team kits supplied by ISC.  The oulets discussions are being held locally with Tappoos and S. Nagindas but this will be confirmed shortly.

All FRU fans will now be able to purchase official Fijian team kits. International Sports Clothing (ISC) is now partner with 26 professional sports teams and is Australia’s largest team wear supplier across the Australian Football League and National Rugby League.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with such an iconic organisation and welcome the Fiji Rugby Union to the ISC family. Fiji has a rich history in the sport and the fans are so passionate about their team which makes the partnership such an important acquisition”, ISC’s Brett Corrick said.
