NETBALL Fiji yesterday announced that Life Insurance Corporation of India will be the major sponsor for the Fiji Singapore test series.

Netball President Wainikiti Bogidrau has applauded the sponsorship as a major boost for the sport.

"We are so proud to be associated with LICI once again. This sponsorship is a testament of the confidence that they have for the largest women sport in Fiji," she said.

"It's also a reflection of their commitment to sports and the local community."

LICI Acting General Manager Sanjeev Jain said the success of the Pacific Netball Series last week has spurred them on to sponsor the two-match test series.

He added that this sponsorship was part of their social responsibility in giving back to the community and also to promote the game to greater heights.

"We are very fortunate to be associated with Netball and this investment is worth it given the crowd support, media coverage and mileage that we can gained and will continue to attract from sponsoring such events."

Meanwhile, the lanky and fast Singapore team had their first training run in Suva today.

Ms Bogidrau is calling on netball supporters to cheer on the national team during the LICI test series.

"Singapore would not be a walkover. Last year, they took us into extra time and we know what they are capable of," she said.

The first test will kick off at 6 tonight (Fiji time) at the Vodafone Arena.

Tickets are being sold at $4 and $2 for children U12.
