Fiji has indicated that it has the infrastructure to host a Super Rugby match and other top tier sporting competitions.

These were the sentiments of Minister of Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou at their Gordon Street Office when addressing the Pulse Energy Highlanders advance team on Tuesday.

Speaking to the team, members of the media and staff of the government department, he mentioned that over the last two years, Fiji has successfully hosted two Super Rugby matches.

“Over the last two years, it was the Gallagher Chiefs at home but this year, it’s the Pulse Energy Highlanders,” Tuitubou said.

He added that the game has brought about many positive outcomes for the economy and even the direct impact it has on many Fijian youths who would like to play in a Super Rugby franchise.

General Manager of Commercial and Marketing for Highlanders Amelia Kinimonth in response said that it was a privilege for the team to be in Fiji.

“We are so honoured to touch so many Fiji Youths with all that we do in sports with us and our team that arrives on Thursday night and so forth,” Kinimonth said.

The extended Pulse Energy Highlanders team arrived yesterday afternoon.

Tickets for the game this Saturday are sold at the Fiji Sports Council in Laucala Bay, Post Fiji Outlets nationwide and online at www.ticketdirect.com.fj
