The 24th Geotech Drilling Marist Hockey Eastgate tournament received $15,000 from this sponsor yesterday.

The Marist Hockey Club will host the three-day tournament as from tomorrow where a total of 11 men and five women teams will take part at the National Hockey Centre.

Geotech Drilling managing director Gary Barnett said this might be their last year of sponsoring one of the largest hockey tournaments in Fiji.

Barnett added though international teams was not able to make it, members of the public will be able to watch local teams vying for top spot.

“This is our fourth year sponsoring this tournament. The last three years my staff have really enjoyed the tournament as well,” Barnett said.

“This is supposed to be my last year, but my wife said if Marist boys and girls win again then we will have to rethink our commitment next year.”

Marist Hockey Club president Peni Sigabalavu is grateful for the support.

“They not only came on board but also increased their sponsorship. As a minority sport any sponsorship goes a long way.”
