“The flight and hotel bookings have been done,” he said.

Thorburn indicated that he would be meeting Fiji Sports Council chief executive officer, Litiana Loabuka, to discuss and sort out the hiring agreement of the ANZ Stadium.

“We are launching the ticket sales next week and we also focused on our detail planning.

“We are also introducing the corporate hospitality programme, which is for exclusive functions.”

Thorburn said to have a broadcast match of such magnitude in the country, there is a need to bring in quality equipment along with a 35-member crew and runners as well.”

He indicated that for next year, there would be six to seven games here where top teams like the Crusaders, Waratahs and Blues are coming over.
