ORGANISERS of the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s tournament have announced that it has partnered with the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation in broadcasting the event next month.
Yesterday, the two parties put pen to paper during a press conference.
Tournament organiser Nick Jordon said they were grateful for FBC for their support.
"We are happy to have FBC on board for the first time," he said.
"This tournament is now the renowned premier 7s tournament in Fiji and champion of champions in the Pacific, by that we mean that we have partnered tournaments from Australia, New Zealand and USA and other places that will send their champion teams here."
FBC chief executive officer Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said they were privileged to partner with the tournament which had grown from strength to strength.
"Very proud to be associated with the Coral Coast 7s for the very first time," he said.
"We are going to cover the three-day tournament and we hope to continue with this partnership in years to come."
The event will be aired live on the final day on FBC TV with delayed coverage of the opening two days.
The tournament is scheduled for November 14-16.
