Digicel Fiji has stepped in to spon­sor the 2018 Northern Sangam Mini Convention to be staged at Subrail Park, Labasa on October 18-21.

This significant partnership is a stepping stone for the Then India Sanmarga Ikya (TISI) Sangam as they plan to organise their 77th convention.

Digicel Fiji sponsorship manager Pacific, Satish Narain speaking on behalf of chief executive officer Mike Greig said, they are delighted to sign this new partnership for their first ever event which brings in people from around the country.

“Digicel will celebrate its 10th birthday next month and as part of the celebrations in Labasa, we will host a free concert with some prominent brands during the tourna­ment on Friday, October 19, 2018,” he said during the signing of the sponsorship in Labasa yesterday.

“It is amazing to know that after 76 years they’ve managed to secure a major sponsor and we are happy to help out.”

The Digicel Northern Sangam mini-convention will see 16 Then Ikya Valibaar (TIV) and six Masters teams participate in an exciting football tournament.

Digicel Northern Sangam Mini Conven­tion organising committee chairman Deep­esh Goundar said they would introduce the Digicel Cup for the first time in a tourna­ment which will see a 1.6- metre high tro­phy at stake.

“This is the first time such a trophy will be contested for in a football tournament.

“We will also incorporate the famous South Indian dance and other dances as well. It will be a four-day festival of sports and culture.”
