All Freight Logistics has come on board once again to boost the Suva football team in this weekend’s INKK Mobile Battle of the Giants (B.O.G) tournament which starts on Friday in Labasa.

Suva Football Association president Ritesh Pratap said yesterday the sponsorship would be a boost for the players as the money will go towards their well-being.

“Having AFL supporting us in this important tournament means a lot and it will definitely be a huge boost for the boys,” Pratap said.

“Going to Labasa is not an easy thing because the players will be away from their families and we need to make sure that the players are comfortable and focused on the tournament.

“We have players who have not been with us for a couple of months and will be joining us again during training which we are looking forward to. We had a friendly game with Rewa yesterday (Sunday) which did us a lot of good and is part of the preparation process for us.

“There are a few areas that we are lacking in which is our finishing and our discipline on the field. Our strike force needs to be sharpened and player discipline needs to be consistent with every game we play.

“I think with this sponsorship, it will motivate the players to really perform on the field and make every performance worth it.”

AFL Suva branch manager Radhika Wilson said they are adamant in helping Suva remain as one of the top clubs as well as fulfilling their social responsibility.

“AFL has been in operation for the last seven years and we are proud sponsors of sports in Fiji, especially the district level,” Wilson said.

“Since AFL has been involved with Suva they have been successful and have achieved some milestones. We continue to support Suva Football in their quest to remain as one of the top teams in Fiji. We believe in corporate social responsibility to ensure enhancement at the community level.

“AFL wants to give back to the community and with this sponsorship with Suva football we hope it will give them a boost in the upcoming B.O.G.”
