Tahiti’s Beach Soccer World Cup receives sponsorship boost

Three new sponsors have been added to the roster of this year’s Fifa Beach Soccer World Cup in Tahiti.

Mobile telecommunications company Vini, electricity suppliers EDT and the Institute of Youth and Sport of French Polynesia (IJSPF) have all joined Tahiti Tourism as national supporters of the tournament, which kicks-off on September 18.

IJSPF chief executive Antonio Arai said: “It (the sponsorship) is the outcome of almost three years of work with the local organising committee. We really hope Fifa will choose French Polynesia again for its other future events.”

Tahiti Tourism signed on to back the event in January last year.
