Fiji’s national airline Fiji Airways is offering a unique opportunity for fans of the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua to attend their historic Super Rugby Pacific playoff against the Crusaders in Christchurch.
The special package called the Fiji Airways Super Fan Experience offered at $899, includes a flight to Christchurch, access to the game, a Drua fan experience, post-match transfers, and a return flight to Nadi. Guests will have a day at leisure in Christchurch to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Garden City.
In a statement, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Andre Viljoen says the Superfan Experience will boost fan support for the team this weekend and potentially lead them to the semi-finals.
Limited spots are available, and interested customers can book via firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Fiji Airways has proudly partnered with the Drua for the last two seasons, a testament of our commitment to rugby. Immediately after the win against the Queensland Reds on Saturday, we were inundated with requests for a special flight this weekend, and we have listened,” Viljoen said, adding: “The high-spirited cheering and vocal support for the Drua at all home games has seen Fijians dubbed as the best fans in the world. Now, Christchurch will get to see a taste of it too.”
“The Drua have risen to the occasion and are sure to draw a large crowd on Saturday. Seeing their fans in large numbers at the stadium is sure to boost their morale and inspire them to a possible semi-final berth.”
The game this weekend is all the more special for the National Airline as sponsors for both the Fijian Drua and the Crusaders in Super Rugby Pacific.
The match scheduled for 7.05 pm this Saturday at the Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch is the two teams’ second meeting this season.
They last met in Round 3, about three months ago in which replacement fly-half Kemu Valetini kicked a penalty in the 83rd minute to earn the Drua a historic 25-24 win over the reigning Super Rugby Pacific champs.
