Fiji Rugby Union’s (FRU) exclusive fuel provider, Mobil Oil (Fiji) has strengthened its relationship with the FRU.

They are sponsoring the fourth leg of the Super Sevens series this weekend, November 12-13 at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

FRU chief executive John O’Connor is grateful that those with Mobil believe in rugby despite the current pandemic worldwide.

O’Connor said: “With business starting to roll after the second wave of COVID-19 hitting Fiji early this year, we at Rugby House are extremely grateful to team Mobil for their loyalty and ongoing trust through their sponsoring the fourth leg of the Super Sevens Series.”

“Their monetary sponsorship will certainly take away some burden off FRU as we had paid all expenses for the last three legs of the Super Sevens series” he said.

Mobil Oil (Fiji) CEO Adi Tamara, said Mobil was pleased to be able to build on its role as FRU’s exclusive fuel supplier.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us in many ways over the last two years,” Adi said.

“Team Mobil is proud to support the fourth leg of the Super Sevens series, an event which will give many people the chance to once again come together to enjoy sport as a community.”

The inaugural season of the Super Sevens series has generated a lot of interest within the local rugby clubs in both the men’s and women’s category and with the Rugby 7s World Cup and Commonwealth Games scheduled next year, the series is expected to be bigger and better.

“The Super Sevens series is now added to FRU’s official rugby calendar.

“Business houses are encouraged to join Fiji Rugby’s healthy group of sponsors by taking the naming right for the series from next year,” O’Connor said.

Meanwhile, 16 men’s and 12 women’s teams will participate in the fourth leg of the Super Sevens Series this Friday and Saturday.

O’Connor has confirmed that only fully vaccinated players and officials will be allowed to take part.

“Participating teams must adhere to the ‘Terms of Participation’ and the ‘Rules and Regulations, for the tournament to run smoothly,” he said.

‘All must comply to the ‘Safe Return to Training and to Play’ protocols”.

The winner of the men’s and women’s category in the fourth leg will be each presented with a trophy.

The Men’s series champions will be awarded the inaugural Super 7s Series trophy and $20,000, the second-placed team will get $10,000 with the third-placed team receiving $5000.
