Anchor Milk has been confirmed as the naming sponsor for the Marist International Netball tournament.

Yesterday, Anchor Milk revealed their support for the Marist International Sports Week, confirming their status as the naming sponsor of the Marist International Netball Tournament.  

Known for fortifying growing bodies, Anchor Milk is delighted to be partnering with Marist in this initiative.  

“Anchor Milk in association with Ah Liki Wholesale are proud supporters of the Marist International Sports Week,” said Asiata Alex Brunt, General Manager of Ah Liki Wholesale. 

“We believe that the tournament offers a great opportunity for young local talents in sports to showcase their abilities and learn from one another through sharing of experiences.” 

“This helps with character building and instilling good sportsmanship values as the Marist brand is well known for.” 

“We firmly believe that the Marist Netball Tournament is a great opportunity to encourage our local talents to follow prominent career pathways in sport.” 

Anchor Milk is no stranger in supporting community initiatives that develops youth and women in Samoa. 

Marist St Joseph’s Sports Club President, Faimalomatua Mathew Lemisio, is therefore grateful that Anchor Milk sees the value in investing in the Marist Netball Tournament initiative. “Netball is Samoa’s premier sport for women and we see this new partnership as a way to provide a platform that displays local talent. 

With the Pacific Games just around the corner, we hope this provides a spark needed to inspire our young netballers with the desire to represent our country.”

The Anchor Milk Marist International Netball Tournament will open the Marist International Sports Week this year. 

The only sport in the week-long roster that includes an U17 division, the tournament will be held across three days with pool matches at Gym 3 Tuanaimato on Thursday 8th – Friday 9th February and then moving to the N.U.S. gym for televised finals. 

 “Televising the netball finals is something we are really excited about. It’s a great opportunity for our netballers to show what they’ve got and local audiences to spot young talent, in the same way our Sevens tournament has provided the same platform in years gone by.”

Teams from the Brisbane Samoa Netball Academy  will be arriving next week to prepare for the tournament which also features local club teams, and secondary school teams. 

The event is being coordinated by the Samoa Institute of Sport and sanctioned by Netball Samoa.
