The Fiji International is de­lighted to part­ner with West­pac Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion for this year’s pres­ti­gious stag­ing of the tour­na­ment.

West­pac will be the of­fi­cial Bank of the 2016 Fiji International. “We have been mon­i­tor­ing the de­vel­op­ment of the Fiji International over the past two years and have been im­pressed with the foot­print the tour­na­ment is mak­ing both do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally,” said Brett Hooker, gen­eral man­ager for the West­pac Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion in Fiji. “Our cus­tomers love the event and it brings im­por­tant global ex­po­sure for the Fiji tourism in­dus­try – and West­pac is proud to be the bank sup­port­ing Fiji to ex­pand its tourism mar­kets.”

West­pac’s part­ner­ship with the Fiji International comes dur­ing a year of growth for the tour­na­ment which is now co-sanc­tioned by the Euro­pean Tour and ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Aus­trala­sia and will fea­ture World Num­ber 21 Brandt Snedeker and three-time ma­jor cham­pion Vi­jay Singh.

“Part­ner­ing with West­pac as the Of­fi­cial Bank of the Fiji International is an ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment for the tour­na­ment,” said Matt Porm, Com­mer­cial Man­ager for the Fiji International.

Be­fore the Fiji International is staged at Nata­dola Bay Cham­pi­onship Golf Course on October 6-9, West­pac will help pro­mote the tour­na­ment across Fiji via the up­com­ing “Give Golf A Go” cam­paign. “The Fiji International and West­pac teams have al­ready be­gun work­ing on a num­ber of ex­cit­ing ini­tia­tives in the lead up to the tour­na­ment that will see us en­gag­ing with lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to in­tro­duce golf at the grass roots level,” Porm said.
