Tough task

Saturday, February 01, 2014

THE five-member judging panel will have a tough task in selecting the best candidates for the 2013 Fiji Sports Awards.

Yesterday the joint organisers, Fiji Sports Council and Fiji National Sports Commission, announced they had received about 70 nominations for the awards.

Council CEO and organising committee chairwoman Litiana Loabuka said they had received a total of 74 nomination for the various awards categories.

"We are encouraged by the efforts taken by various individuals and groups; also for the calibre of nominees that have been put forward, especially after a slow start."

The awards night will be on February 21 at the Vodafone Arena in Suva where Petero Civoniceva, the Vodafone Fiji Bati captain to the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, will be guest speaker.

Loabuka said everything was going according to plan and the only thing now for them to do was wait for the judges to make their decisions.

"The task now rests with our panel of judges who no doubt have a mammoth task ahead of them."

Tickets go on sale from Monday at the council office in Laucala Bay at $45 per seat and $320 per table.
