Paradise Beverages has provided $50,000 for the 2018 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s which will be held at the ANZ Stadium, Suva on March 23-24.

The sponsorship is an increase of $9000 from this year’s tournament.

Paradise Beverages sales/marketing manager Joe Rodan Snr applauded the Marist Rugby Club’s tremendous work in the past 41 years which have allowed the company to support the two-day tourney for the 42nd year.

“We are proud to be associated with the Marist Rugby Club because of the way they ran the tournaments in the past,”Rodan Snr said.

“Everything’s spot on,  on time and efficient.

“With the organisation of this tournament it just showed the world that Fiji is ready to host any major tournament. Marist Rugby has proved that doing it in the past 41 years.

“We are too happy and proud to be associated with the Marist Rugby because of the way they organised the tournament.

“We love our 7s tournament and we will continue to be associated with Marist Rugby  which in turn helps in the development of grassroots rugby,” Rodan Snr added.

Marist Rugby executive Koli Korovulavula confirmed the only change would be in the Oldies division.

“The Oldies division will be an invitational one since we want to make it  more of a social event,” Korovulavula said.

“We will also treat all teams equal.

We are also working hard to improve and develop women’s rugby in Fiji. We want to encourage new clubs to join  the competition.”

There would be 64 men’s and 12 women’s teams competing for the annual event. Registration closes on March 9.
