UPRISING Fiji International Sevens organisers are hoping to attract more international teams in their bid to make the annual event a "truly world class tournament".
Following the success of this year's tournament at Churchill Park in Lautoka over the weekend, organising committee chairman Culden Kamea confirmed all international teams that participated would be returning next year.
Kamea added they would work on attracting more overseas teams to improve the level of competition in the fourth edition of the tournament.
He said they would continue to host the event two weeks prior to the Wellington 7s every year.
"That's our window. We have cemented our position as a world class tournament and we hope to attract some more international teams to make it better," Kamea said.
"All managers of the international teams that took part in this tournament have confirmed they were coming back."
Kamea rated this year's Uprising 7s as the best and hoped it would get better each year.
He thanked the sponsors and especially the Lautoka City Council for providing a magnificent playing field.
"The international teams loved the ground and they all said it was a world-class ground. I thank Lautoka City Council for the fantastic job they did to turn things around so quickly after Cyclone Evan."
The Uprising 7s was won by Digicel Fiji Barbarians which defeated FMF Fiji Warriors 31-12 in the final on Saturday.
Meanwhile, organisers are keen to host next year's tournament in Lautoka once again.
