thirty-two teams will contest the Coastal Great Eight Sevens in Sigatoka next weekend.
Westfield Barbarians, Daveta, Wardens and Army are among the favoured teams for the tournament which starts on Friday, November 1 with eight pools of four.
The top two teams from each pool return on Saturday when the action becomes sudden-death as only the winners of the first eight matches progress to the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens on November 14-16.
The tournament is the final chance for teams wanting to make a cut into the Coral Coast Sevens.
"There has been phenomenal interest in this year's Coastal Great Eight and as a result we have expanded the tournament to 32 teams enabling as many teams from around Fiji the opportunity to play," tournament director Jay Whyte said.
"It is a great endorsement of the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens that so many teams want to be part of the 'champion of champions' and we thank Coastal Rental Cars for their support for this year's qualifier."
Entry is free for the tournament which kicks off at 9.40 am on Friday.
