THE tickets for the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s to be played at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka next month went on sale at the Fiji Sports Council, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation house and selected Total service stations yesterday.
The ticket prices for the 24-team men's competition, the Champion of Champions for the Pacific Rim and the 12-team women's section have been frozen from last year.
The tournament organisers are also offering free entry on the opening day.
Tournament director Nick Jordan said the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s had established itself as one of the most competitive tournaments just below the Sevens World Series.
"Fans can again discover the passion with some outstanding 7s action," Jordan said.
"At $5 entry for the embankment, $10 for a seat in the grandstand on Friday and $15 for a covered seat on Saturday, it is a wonderful opportunity to see the best local talents take on champion sides from around the Pacific in the spiritual home of the sport.
"Teams from Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and the USA have confirmed their attendance while the Coastal Great Eight Sevens on November 1-2 will determine the finest Fijian clubs to contest for the $30,000 first prize."
Red Rock won the men's division last year beating Police 19-12 in the final while the Aussie Pearls won the women's division beating Marist Seahawks 22-19 in the final.
Jordan said there would be attractive prizes for the spectators as well.
"Apart from the non-stop exciting rugby action, the fans can rub shoulders with world record point scorer Ben Gollings who will be unveiled on the Walk of Fame in Fiji's rugby-mad town," Jordan said.
"Plus we have a few other surprises in store for those that get along to Lawaqa Park."
The tournament is sponsored by Bayleys Real Estate (Fiji), Goodman Fielder Fiji, Total Fiji Ltd, Fiji Airways, Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji, Warwick Fiji Resort & Spa, The Naviti Resort, FBC, CFL, The Fiji Times, Fiji Hideaway Resort & Spa, Coastal Rental Cars, Shangri-La's Fijian Resort & Spa, Nivea Men, Tappoo Group of Companies, Fiji Chemicals Diversey, Serevi Rugby and Sigatoka River Safari.
The tournament will be held from November 14-17.
