THE Navua soccer side has received a major boost in its bid to avoid relegation this season.

Suva-based company B Prasad and Sons Limited handed $10,000 yesterday to help the team's campaign this season.

Navua is one of the teams facing a relegation threat after the opening round of the Fiji Sun/Weetbix National Football League competition. But after receiving the cash boost yesterday at the sponsorship launch in Navua, association president Eddie Fong Toy promised the team would not get demoted to the premier grade.

"I promise that Navua will not fall, it will not go to the B Division," he said.

Tui Namosi Ratu Suliano Matanitobua, who was the chief guest at the launch, urged the players to show pride in the district.

"During the time when I used to play, there was only district pride. We never played for money, we played for pride only," he said.

"I thank the Navua team and the community for a job well done and I give my blessing to the Navua and Namosi teams."

B Prasad and Sons Limited director Ashok Prasad said they were proud to be associated with Navua football.

Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan was also present at the launch.
