THE organisers of the 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s continue to receive support for the tournament which starts today at the ANZ Stadium.

Yesterday, Chicken Express pledged its support in kind towards the two-day tournament.

The Australian-owned franchise would provide meals to 350 volunteers who will be part of the tournament.

Company director Nick Sharma said they were pleased to support the country's biggest 7s rugby tournament.

He said they hoped to continue this partnership in years to come.

"We are a family-oriented company and rugby being the preferred sport for most Fijians, we decided to come on board and support this tournament," Sharma said.

"We are originally from Nadroga where rugby is quite prominent so when this opportunity came up, we didn't have to think twice."

Sharma said their sponsorship coincided with the opening of their 11th outlet at the RB Centerpoint.

Tournament organising committee chairman Lawrence Tikaram, while thanking Chicken Express said they were happy to partner with another global brand.

"Chicken Express has always shown interest in the past and we are happy with the opportunity to share their brand."

Tikaram also thanked Go Advertising which was the tournament's advertising partner.

"I'm an old boy of Marist, Marist is in my blood and it's my duty to support Marist in whatever way possible," Go Advertising director Charles Wakeham said.
