Fiji Sun will be the official print media partner of the 2017 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s at the ANZ Stadium on March 24-25.

Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram and Fiji Sun general manager advertising/business development Rachna Lal signed the deal at the Paradise Beverages boardroom in Suva yesterday.

The in-kind sponsorship will include advertising space and is worth more than $45,000.

Lal said the Fiji Sun was delighted to be part of event which is pinnacle of all local sevens tournaments.

“Fiji Sun is glad to continue this partnership and I thank the Marist 7s organising committee for giving us this opportunity,” Lal said.

“We believe the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s is a very iconic event. You would remember the old Fiji Sun was a partner initially back when the inaugural tournament started in 1976 and we are happy to continue with this partnership.”

Lal also congratulated the club for promoting grassroots rugby in the country.

“We look forward to continue this partnership,” she said.

Tikaram acknowledges the Fiji Sun for the support.

“This is a special event for us,” Tikaram said.

“It is 41 years in the making and we consider the media to be an important facet of the build up to the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s. We acknowledge Fiji Sun’s historical link with the tournament.

“Not only we believe this tournament has a lot to offer in terms of developing grassroot rugby, we acknowledge the fact that you have come on board to provide an in-depth coverage of the teams’ preparation,” Tikaram said.

Tikaram believes this is a great catalyst because teams get to acknowledge themselves in terms of preparation through the media.

“The media will always do a critical job and I thank the Fiji Sun for this partnership which will grow from strength to strength,” Tikaram said.
