PACIFIC Energy continues to support the Coca-Cola Games with a gift of $10,000 worth of fuel for this year’s competition.

The company has been part of the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association for the past seven years and yesterday announced its continued support for the games.

Commercial business manager Nemani Kobiti said the sponsorship was part of their commitment to help grow the games.

“First of all I would like to thank Fiji Secondary Schools for allowing us to be one of the sponsors this year,” he said.

“We have been doing his for the past eight years and we are excited about the opportunity and our relationship with Coca-Cola as well as partnership for this year.

“We will be giving $10,000 worth of fuel as part of our sponsorship which I believe will be of great help to the games committee.

“We are confident how the games has been organised which is attributed to Waqa and we wish all the athletes the best for this year.”

FSSAA general secretary Vuli Waqa said the support by Pacific Energy and other sponsors had helped in the success of the game.

“We are very grateful indeed for Pacific Energy to come on board.”

“This is the kind of sponsorship that stays for a longer time unlike those that come in a year and goes out again.

“We are looking for is someone that is staying with us allowing the athletes to showcase their talents through the Coca-Cola Games,” Waqa said.
