"FUSA has no sponsors and we would very grateful to commercial organisations and others for assistance or sponsorship for next year's World University games," Singh said. "This year's FUSA games were very successful compared to previous years and we would like to thank the Fiji Sports Council and Coca- Cola for their support."
