TELECOMMUNICATION company Digicel Fiji has stepped in to sponsor the Tri Series Plus One competition which will be hosted by Netball Fiji next week.

Yesterday, the company presented $15,000 in cash and promised in kind benefits at its Kadavu House office in Suva.

The Fiji Pearls will play Northern Ireland and Papua New Guinea in the series to be held from May 6-9 in Suva.

Netball Fiji president Wainikiti Bogidrau was thrilled with this partnership and said they were looking forward to the series.

She ensured the series would be a success adding they would try their best to ensure Digicel Fiji gets their "money's worth".

"Netball unfortunately does not attract the kind of sponsorship that our male sports get all the time but we believe this is a start of better things to come in netball and Digicel," Bogidrau said.

Digicel Fiji's commercial director Andrew Skelton said they were also delighted to sponsor the event.

"I'm pleased to support the largest women sport in the country.

"This sponsorship includes cash plus sims for all players, credit for Fiji Pearls team members, training tee-shirts for the Pearls and Fiji A and other support that Netball Fiji needs to host this week-long tournament."
