The 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s has been planned to have a one-stop shop for participating teams, spectators, sponsors, and the media.
Organising committee chairman Lawrence Tikaram said everyone turning up to the tournament would walk away with fond memories of the tournament.
Tikaram said teams competing would receive cash and consolation prizes. There will also be competitions, entertainments and foods for sale for everyone.
In a first for a local 7s tourney, there will be free internet for everyone during the two days.
This came about after the announcement yesterday of continuing partnership between Digicel and Marist Rugby Club the owners of the tourney.
The partnership will see free internet access for teams, spectators and even the media, Digicel merchandise and rugby balls as consolation prizes and two balls each per team, and $1000 worth of mobile phone credit to the player who will be names as the Find of the tournament, Top try scorer of the tournament and the Player of the tournament.
“We thank Digicel for helping us develop rugby and especially grassroots rugby and those clubs from around the country,” Tikaram said.
“They are the ones who gain because they win cash prices and incentives with the help of Digicel. This is the third year of our partnership and this will make the tournament grow.”
Digicel chief executive officer Maurice McCarthy said they were happy to be part of the tournament.
The tournament starts tomorrow at 8am with defending champions Tokatoka Resort Westfield Babaas versus the Tomasi Cama (Junior)-coached West Roosters Wellington NZ at the ANZ Stadium.
