Vodafone announced contract with Lakapi Samoa


Vodafone Samoa continues to support grassroots rugby in Samoa and on Monday 6th March 2023 announced the continuation of a contract with the Lakapi Samoa. 

In a statement released, says that as evidence to this partnership, Vodafone is sponsoring the National Provincial Cup starting this weekend, 11th March to the 15th of April 2023.

This will be a 6-week tournament and we are excited to see how this unfolds.

This year will be a great year for rugby in general and what better way to promote this than having our reigning Miss Samoa, Haylani Pearl Kuruppu as the face of the entire campaign. 

This sport talks to the future rugby stars of this country and it should inspire them to reach their potential and someday be able to wear Blue Jersey on the global stage.

The sport teaches young people to be disciplined and be better human beings. It will encourage grassroots growth and motivate our young ones to embrace the benefits of sports.

Over the years Vodafone has been supporting the Lakapi Samoa to identify and train grassroots rugby talents from villages to represent Samoa at the world stage; Many of them are already in the national team and making Samoa proud with their performances,” said Rana Bose, Acting CEO of Vodafone Samoa. 

“We are proud to have Vodafone continue their partnership with Lakapi Samoa in our domestic tournaments becoming major sponsors of the National Provincial Championship.

This 15’s tournament is important for the development of our up-and-coming players from around Samoa to feed into our Academy and pathway teams,” said Faleomavaega Vincent Fepulea’i, CEO of Lakapi Samoa.
