THE 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s organisers received a timely boost yesterday after Digicel Fiji presented $13,000 worth of sponsorship in kind to help the running of the two-day tournament.

The sponsorship include merchandise and free credit which would be given to participating teams, players, officials and fans at the tournament starting tomorrow at the ANZ Stadium.

Also the player of the tournament, new find of the tournament and the top try-scorer will receive $1000 worth credit each.

Digicel Fiji chief executive officer Maurice McCarthy said they were proud to continue their partnership with Marist 7s.

Digicel Fiji head of marketing Sheryl Singh added they were delighted to be part of the biggest tournament in Fiji.

"The focus of the Marist 7s is to develop grassroot rugby and that's what Digicel has always been associated with," Singh said.

"I know champagne 7s rugby will be on display in Suva this weekend and our partnership adds value to the existing prize package offered by the organisers."

While accepting the sponsorship, tournament organising committee chairman Lawrence Tikaram said they were happy to welcome Digicel on board for the third year as one of the associate sponsors.

"Digicel has been supporting the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament for some time and we look forward to continuing with this partnership in 2014 and beyond."
