NATIONAL netball shooter Maria Lutua has a new role to play.

The lanky player has become the country's first netballer to sign on with Digicel Fiji as its brand ambassador.

She follows in the footsteps of other well-known stars of Fiji such as Banuve Tabakaucoro and Iliesa Delana and Setefano Cakau.

Lutua, who helped the Fiji Pearls side win the Tri-series Plus One last week, said she was looking forward to engaging in more community activities.

"I am privileged, honoured and thankful to be signed on with Digicel Fiji as its brand ambassador and thank them for giving me this opportunity," she said.

"This is another step up for me in my sporting career and it will be a good challenge me for in my role as a public figure both on and off the court.

"I hope to do my best for both the country and the Digicel brand."

Digicel Fiji's marketing head Sheryl Singh said Lutua's term as brand ambassador would be for two years.

"We are delighted to have a person of Maria's calibre joining our team," she said.

"Hopefully, there will be a few more female brand ambassadors joining us in the near future."
