The Suva Business House Futsal League will kick off next week.
Great news for the organizers as well with leading health drink brand – Ovaltine has for the first time partnered with Bula Events Group as the major sponsors of this year’s tournament.
The five‐a‐side soccer tournament which will kick‐off from the National Hockey Court on Tuesday, will run for 17 weeks.
“We expect to field 32 teams this year in comparison to the 20 teams that participated last year and the partnership with such an iconic brand like Ovaltine could not have come at a better time,”
tournament organiser Alan Kumar of Bula Events Group said.
“The Futsal League is a great sports networking event for the Suva business community and this has been proven with the success we had last year,” Mr Kumar added.
He said the major sponsorship announcement by Ovaltine is set to help create a bigger and better tournament this year.
Marketing manager Abraham Gomes said the team behind Ovaltine in Fiji is excited to partner with a sporting event for the first time.
“Globally Ovaltine is highly reputed as a health drink which helps better sports performance because it is power‐packed with fourteen vitamins and ten minerals,” Mr Gomes said.
“This is the first time the brand is involved in sponsoring a sporting event and we look forward to making it more exciting with our presence.”
