The deal will see the team known as Interchange Vanuatu Rugby League Men’s National team. Interchange will also have pride of place on the front of the playing jersey and shorts, as well as across all training gear.
Interchange is a Vanuatu-based organisation committed to a better future for Melanesia by providing nation-building telecommunications technologies and infrastructure to communities throughout the entire region.
Best known as the owner operators of Vanuatu’s first international submarine cable system linking Port Vila to Suva, Interchange has recently embarked on a project to deliver a second cable for Vanuatu linking Port Vila to Honiara, which will provide redundancy and security to the existing cable while providing faster and more affordable access to the citizens of Vanuatu and Solomon Islands.
Expanding on upcoming projects, Interchange will also be introducing “Interchange Cloud” in early October, providing affordable access to Virtual Servers, Domain, email and web hosting, and a host of other tools to allow local businesses to really start to leverage the rapid growth of internet access in Vanuatu to grow their business.
“From a social standpoint we want to align ourselves with organisations and programs that are committed to making a positive difference in the community. We see the development of Rugby League in Vanuatu as a game that that transcends gender, culture, age and geography to provide a platform to impart some core values in the Vanuatu communities and make that difference” commented Interchange Limited Key Accounts & Regional Sales Manager, Andrew Middlebrook.
The Rugby League Emerging Nations World Championship, the third iteration of the event will take place in Sydney (Australia) from 1st to 13th October.
