THE Coca-Cola Games received a huge boost with the timely sponsorship from Burger King yesterday.

The world-class fast food restaurant gave $7000 for this year’s Fiji Finals.

Burger King general manager Akash Narsey said the company was committed to promote, develop and expose athletes to fully utilise their talents during the games.

“We are here to announce that Burger King is coming on board as official partner with Coca-Cola,” Narsey said.

“I’d like to thank the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association especially our partner Coca-Cola for bringing us in to be part of the event.

“The Coca-Cola Games is one of the biggest events that happen in secondary school sports Fiji wide and to be partner of the event is a very great honour.

“It is something we are proud to be associated with and our commitment for this year’s event is a total of $7000 which goes to highlight how we value this particular partnership and we are grateful to be part of it.”

Narsey said the company would issue 100 games’ tickets to their customers.

“There are no more tickets available at the moment so we will give away 100 tickets as part of our promotion.

“We encourage families to come down to any of our four restaurants Fiji wide and go into the draws to win tickets.”

FSSAA general secretary Vuli Waqa thanked the company for supporting the games.

“I take this opportunity to thank Burger King as one of the sponsors of this year’s Coca-Cola Games.”

“The success of the games is because of the large extent of the kind sponsorships by our major sponsor Coca-Cola and the many companies that had come on board sponsoring the games.”

Coca-Cola Amatil (Fiji) Ltd marketing manager Lawrence Tikaram said.

“This partnership is a result of our ongoing support for secondary schools to continue to look for sponsors and add values to the game.

“This is just an expression of adding value to the game and to have our global partner Burger King as partners shows the success of the games.

“Having said that I am sure many people will enjoy using the benefits at Burger King,” he added.

The Coca-Cola Games will be held next week from April 19-21.
