THE organisers of the 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament have made a commitment through which all participating teams in the two-day event will walk away with "at least something".

Through the sponsorship of their official merchandise retailer, Jacks of Fiji, all participating teams will get a Qaqa brand rugby ball each.

"The key success ingredient and basic tool to developing grass roots rugby is about owning a rugby ball," tournament organising committee chairman Lawrence Tikaram said.

"We are excited we could make this possible for all teams and are thankful to Bhavin Khatri and his team at Jacks for making this happen.

"Local brands support local events is truly developing grass roots rugby and making our vision 'The Search for Rio' take shape and become a reality."

Meanwhile, the team managers and coaches are to attend the briefing to be held on May 6 at 6pm at the Lambert Hall.

Vodafone Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan will be present at the briefing.
