Vodafone assures S.R.U. of continued support

Vodafone Samoa C.E.O. Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma has congratulated Samoa Rugby Union for hosting a successful Vodafone National Rugby Sevens Series which saw Tepatasi emerge as outright champions.

He said with the world currently facing uncertain times, the S.R.U. management can be rest assured of the continued support of Vodafone Samoa.

"On behalf of your Vodafone Family, we would like to extend our gratitude towards the Samoa Rugby Union for hosting another year of fantastic National Rugby 7s,” Nofoasaefa said in statement.

“A big thank you to all teams who participated in this year's tournament, but mostly a job well done to Tepatasi, our new Vodafone National 7s Champions. Malo lava, faafetai." 

Apia Park Stadium was filled with spectators from around Samoa on Saturday, who converged on the sporting facility to support their local rugby 7s teams vying for the Vodafone National 7s Cup.

However, Tepatasi from Aleipata reigned supreme as this year's champions of the Vodafone National 7s Series 2020.

“Every year, Vodafone always looks forward to when it's National Rugby 7s season, as we know there will be great 7’s Rugby talent displayed by our local players,” added Nofoasaefa.

Vodafone [then Bluesky] have been avid supporters of the development of Rugby 7s within Samoa for a long time now, having invested well over $5 million tala into the development of the Manu Samoa 7s.

Helping the game grow further, Vodafone Samoa, donated cash and in-kind to assist in the success of this year’s Vodafone National 7s Series according to Nofoasaefa.

“Helping the development of our Rugby 7s from the grass root levels is something we’re passionate about and it reiterates our commitment to the game in Samoa."

"To us, it's liberating to know that we are helping our local players become future Manu Samoa 7s players and that is every local player's dream – we're helping bring that dream to life. So continue to support your Vodafone family as we continue to support your rugby ambitions.”
