Organisers of the 2017 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s urges participating teams to make full payments when they register for the two-day tourney at the ANZ Stadium on March 24-25.

Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram said teams have to pay now to avoid disappointment.

“For teams still trying to finalize full payments we encourage them to do so as soon as possible,”Tikaram said.

“As we know many teams are preparing for the pinnacle of all 7s in Fiji.”

The registration fee is $600 while the women’s and the Classic categories is $400 per team.

Ticket Sales, merchandises

Ticket sales will commence a week before the tournament from the Fiji Sports Council office.

“Ticket prices are quite modest and reasonable for 200 plus games over two days.

“Ticket prices on the first day will be $7 flat and $15 grandstand and $ 5 flat on the ground on the second day which is such immense value as we need to cater for our grassroots supporters from round Fiji.

“We are working with our other media organizations to work on getting tournament coverage to the global stage,” Tikaram said.

The merchandises can be purchased from Jack’s Fiji store.

Medics update

Organisers also acknowledged the medical team from the Fiji National University for their assistance towards the competition.

“We also acknowledge the hard work of FNU team event director medics  Bill Mar along with  Dr Berlin Kafoa  and Venesio Ramabuke for  their support being the official medic provider along with Dr Warren from Colonia War Memorial Hospital.

“This is supported by three tournament doctors and 20 FNU physio specialists.

The St Johns’ Ambulance team will be led by Emma Bovoro with 25 staff will supplement the services of the tournament.

“We will have over 50 medics as we place safety foremost for our players coupled with the best sporting environment for enhanced performance.”

Volunteers

A total of 350 volunteers will participate in the two-day tourney.

“We also would like to inform our volunteers as well to register their names with Event Director Alifereti Gonerogo now to assist in the logistics for tournament preparation,”Tikaram said.
