VODAFONE Fiji has committed to the development of grassroots rugby through the $40million sponsorship deal with the Fiji Rugby Union.

In a statement, company managing director Aslam Khan said through their commitment together with the consortium partners, they would lift the development of the game and enhance the growth of rugby in Fiji.

The Vodafone Fiji led consortium which includes Fiji Airways, CJ Patel Fiji Limited, Home Finance Company, Telecom Fiji Limited and Fijian Holdings Limited sealed the $8m per year deal last week.

"Vodafone is more than happy to be back once again after 10 years in sponsoring the team and empower them to be the best," Khan said.

"During the initial years of our sponsorship we were able to witness some great matches in the sevens rugby fraternity that saw Fiji winning the Melrose Cup and series of Hong Kong Sevens."

Khan said they were proud to be part of the biggest sports sponsorship deal in the country.

"This is another step forward in our relationship with Fiji Rugby Union to offer more opportunities to many Fijians who love the sport.

"As we all know, rugby is the heartbeat of our nation.

"As a responsible corporate body, we have always endured to fulfil our civic responsibilities by giving back to the community.

"We are overwhelmed by the awarding of the tender to Vodafone and its consortium of partners. Together with FRU and our partners, we are confident that we will be delivering awesome results."
