A CASH sponsorship of $75,000 has sealed the deal for Digicel Fiji to take up the naming rights for the Ba Riverside Carnival.

At an event to mark the occasion in Ba on Wednesday night, Digicel Fiji's commercial director Andrew Skelton said company was proud to be associated with the initiative.

"This is the first time Digicel Fiji has partnered with the Ba Riverside carnival committee," he said.
