Vodafone Fiji has an­nounced its commitment to sponsor the much-an­ticipated Oceania Netball World Cup qualifiers this month.

The announcement was made yesterday by Vodafone Fiji chief marketing officer Rajnesh Pras­ad at the company’s headquar­ters in Princes Road, Tamavua, in Suva

The sponsorship totaled to $40,000 and it includes sporting equipment and cash funding.

In addition, Vodafone Fiji has also pledged telecommunica­tions partnership for the one-week event.

Prasad said they shared the vi­sion of encouraging and empow­ering women in sports in Fiji.

“Our sponsorship will ensure that we provide the funding and the appropriate marketing and promotion support needed for the qualifiers,” Prasad said.

“Vodafone Fiji stands commit­ted to supporting the incredible netball community and women’s sport, Vodafone will work to­gether with the body to support the growth of netball further be­ginning with the facilitation of the Oceania Netball World Cup qualifiers.”

Oceania Netball Federation president Wainikiti Bogidrau ac­knowledged Vodafone Fiji for the timely sponsorship.

The five teams participating are Fiji, Cook Islands, Tonga, Samoa, and Papua New Guinea.

She said they expected changes to the team that would qualify for the World Cup in South Africa next year given the strength of each team and performance in the March series in Australia.

Only two teams with the most points will qualify for the World Cup. The qualifiers will be held at the Vodafone Arena on July 19 – 23.
