Petero Civoniceva is at the head of a bid to secure a New South Wales Cup club in Suva, Fiji.

Along with Greg Browne, the former Kangaroos and Fiji international star is leading the campaign for a team to play out of Fiji in 2016.

The bid has now received endorsements from the New South Wales Rugby League Board, along with the Fiji National Rugby League and the Fiji Sports Council.

“Our aim is to provide an affordable and exciting atmosphere for all fans and professional opportunities for our local playing squad, who will train full time in our training base in Suva,” said Civoniceva.

“Our home ground will be the National Stadium – ANZ Stadium, Suva.

“Our vision is to be the most popular club in the New South Wales Cup to supporters in Fiji and in Sydney. Financial viability will be assured through building strong partnerships through our government and corporate partnerships.

“The franchise will provide pathway and development programs from juniors through to seniors and will showcase the tremendous Fijian playing talent.
