VRL Lands Leading Pacific Advisory

Leading firm Pacific Advisory has signed on as a Gold Sponsor of the Fr8 Logistics/DHL Vanuatu Rugby League (VRL) team. The Gold sponsorship includes the upcoming Test Match in Port Vila against the Solomon Islands on 15th October at Port Vila Stadium.

VRL President Tom Carlo commented that this valuable sponsorship means more than just the revenue it brings into the organisation “This sponsorship is very important in the short term to allow us to stage an international fixture in Vanuatu, something most other Pacific countries don’t do due to the cost but in the long-term we plan to continue to partner with leading organisations such as Pacific Advisory to assist us the grow our game and organisation at all levels.”

Pacific Advisory is pleased to support the ongoing growth of rugby league in Vanuatu,
Managing Partner Glen Craig says “We have watched the steady growth of Rugby League
in Vanuatu over the past 7 years and note is one of the few sports with regular
international matches in Vanuatu. This speaks to the dedication of the VRL and
international body to develop league amongst the grassroots level including the
recent introduction of a domestic competition.”

The game will be the first fixture between the respective nations since their only meeting in 2013, Vanuatu’s only game outside of Vanuatu in Mackay (Australia) to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the first South-Sea Islanders brought to Australia to work in the agricultural industry. Port Vila Fire Ants and Santo Boars will again do battle in the inter-provincial clash for the 5th straight year, since its debut game in 2012.

VRL President Tom Carlo further expanded on what this sponsorship means for the VRL “To now have a second organisation in Pacific Advisory, joining Fr8 Logistics/DHL is particularly pleasing to have such investments into a young organisation such as the VRL. They see the potential in what Rugby League as a sport can do for Vanuatu and the confidence in the organisation to deliver. Pacific Advisory has been so successful due to local knowledge and wise investments and we take great confidence of their investment into the VRL.”
