Swire Shipping has announced the extension of its exclusive naming rights sponsorship of the Fijian Drua for a further two years.

“We are delighted to extend our partnership with the Fijian Drua for two more years,” Swire Shipping’s Regional Manager for the Pacific Islands Alex Pattison said in a statement.

“As a longstanding supporter of sport in Fiji, we recognise the significant role that rugby plays in the nation’s culture and the impact it has on communities across the country.

“We are incredibly proud of what the Drua have achieved, both on and off the field, and hope that our ongoing partnership will give the Drua vuvale the continuity and support they need to continue representing the hopes and aspirations of Fijians at the highest level of international rugby competition.”

Fijian Drua CEO Mark Evans said nobody could have done more than Swire Shipping in helping and assisting the establishment of a new Super Rugby Pacific in Fiji.

“They are an outstanding partner and we are absolutely delighted that they have agreed to extend their sponsorship for another two years,” Evans said.

“Their brand is synonymous with the Drua and their support demonstrates a real commitment to the Pacific in general and Fiji in particular.”
