The Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion will test the best 16 players in the country on November 14 at Nausori Club.

Pillay Garments Limited is sponsoring the Fiji Billiard and Snooker Association event for three years for $10,000, with this being the second year.

With the presentation of $3,500 for the Champion vs Champion competition, FBSA president Bhatti Riffat said this year’s tournament will be a very tough one.

“We are really grateful firstly to have Pillay Garments on board with us because without sponsors, tournaments such as this are not possible,” Riffat said.

“This year’s tournament is expected to be a good one because we have our top 16 going head to head, so the standard can be expected to rise.

“The tournament is not only about the top players in the country but also about attracting new players as well. Snooker has grown and there is a lot of talent in Fiji, we just need to tap into that.”

Meanwhile,Pillay Garments Limited managing director Narendra Pillay said with just a year left of the sponsorship, he hopes to sponsor snooker continuously in the future.
