With Fijian rugby league continually on the rise and looking for new ways to boost their profile, they have received significant news heading into the Rugby League World Cup later this year, with Fiji’s national airline Air Pacific, agreeing to sign a 1-year sponsorship deal.

The deal, worth just under US$20,000 to Fiji Bati will be one of 14 teams competing in the World Cup.

Josaia Rawaya, the Air Pacific Regional General Manager says that the deal and the company will assist Fiji Bati with all travelling, administration and other expenses.

“Our starting F$35,000 deal will assist the team’s travelling, administration and other expenses before and during the 2013 World Cup campaign,” said Rawaya.

Peni Musunamasi, the FNRL Chairman, said that they are delighted to have signed the deal with Air Pacific, who were also a sponsor during the 2008 World Cup.

“We are happy that this sponsorship has come in such opportune time as we prepare for the World Cup. We were partners with Air Pacific during the 2008 Rugby League World Cup and we are glad that they are back in time for the next World Cup,” said Musunamasi.
