KARATE Fiji has received a shot in the arm as it prepares to host the Oceania Karate Championships in Suva.

The event is scheduled for September 11 to 13 at the Vodafone Arena in Laucala Bay and Crest Chicken has pledged $3000 to show their support.

Karate Fiji president Makarita Lenoa said the assistance would help the athletes for the event.

"Karate Fiji welcomes the sponsorship from Crest Chicken, and is always grateful for any sponsorship received as it will support the athletes for the upcoming Oceania Championship," she said.

Goodman Fielder's marketing and business development manager, Clifford Morris, said they wanted to contribute towards the development of youths through sports.

"Crest Chicken strongly believes in the development for youth through sports, we envision Karate Fiji's objective in growing this sport in Fiji and the region," he said.

"It is within the Crest and Goodman Fielder values to get better all the time and we have seen a remarkable growth for Karate in Fiji.

"We wish every success to the upcoming Oceania Karate championship."

While international teams start arriving for the event next week, Fiji's athletes warmed-up for the championship by competing in the Sun Insurance-sponsored National Karate Championships last month at the Yat Sen School Hall.
