Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Commiitee (FASANOC) chief executive officer Lorraine Mar has confirmed that they would replace the eight lottery ticket books which were stolen following the launch two weeks ago.

“These eight lottery ticket books were stolen out of the car which was broken into,” she said.

“They were all unsold so it was necessary for us to advertise on the paper that these tickets were stolen and they have been cancelled.

Mar has also clarified that the stolen tickets would not be accepted for the draws.

“No one can bring them in because they were actually taken by someone to sell so we have cancelled these tickets and they will be replaced by another eight,” she said.

The lottery was to fundraise for the sporting federations taking part in the 2015 Pacific Games in Port Moresby. This is a major fundraising drive for FASANOC and the sporting federations to accommodate for their expenses.

It would be a favourable opportunity for the respective federations to raise funds for themselves.

“If  they sell up to 200 books they get  back 50 per-cent of what they sell and the other 50 percent  is for  FASANOC  for prizes and administrative expenses,

“If they sell over 200 they get 60 per-cent back and if they sell over 500 books then they will get 70per-cent back of what they sell  and to help them we want the general public to buy tickets,” Mar added.

FASANOC has also introduced the Team Fiji champion programme where the corporate organisations are invited to become Team Fiji Champion by supporting the lottery.

“To become the Team Fiji champion corporate organisations pay $3000 they get 100 lottery books each book worth $30, they become a team Fiji champion and they get Team Fiji merchandising kit which will provide Team Fiji uniforms and also a certificate,

“We are looking forward for the lottery sales to be a success,” Mar added.
