The Skipper Cup Premiership competition kicks off on July 25 while the Vodafone Vanua Championship starts on August 22.

The Fiji Rugby Union made the confirmation after Prime Minister Voreqe  Bainimarama announced the easing of the   COVID-19 restrictions on Sunday.

“We would like to thank the Fijian Government for allowing us to commence local competitions.” FRU chief executive officer John O’Connor said.

He said it was key for all involved to embrace the new normal in relation to return to play guidelines set in place by Fijian Government and World Rugby.

“We are conscious of FRU’s responsibility to lead the community in adhering to protocols for protecting the health and safety of the nation and remaining vigilant in the ongoing fight against COVID-19,” he said.

O’Connor also expressed gratitude to major competition partners CJ Patel and Vodafone Fiji for honouring their commitment to FRU.

“We know it has been a tough year and their loyalty to Fiji Rugby is invaluable.”
