THE annual Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (FSSAC) may not have financial difficulties for the next five years.

This is after Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji (CCAF) renewed its sponsorship to cater for the event till 2018.

During the contract renewal yesterday, CCAF handed over a cheque for $767,223 to the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association (FSSAA).

FSSAA general secretary Filimoni Vuli Waqa said they were grateful to their sponsors for the increase in sponsorship over the years.

"Back when the sponsorship first started, it used to be for $5000," he said.

"This event is something our secondary school students and their parents and schools look forward to every year and we are thankful to Coca-Cola for their support over the years.

"We are hoping this partnership will continue for another 41 years and more."

CCAF general manager Steven Jowell has asked the organisers and athletes to give their best performance in their respective fields to ensure the event is successful.

CCAF national sales convenience and leisure manager Lawrence Tikaram said the torch relay for the event would begin soon and would visit 89 schools including some on Vanua Levu and Levuka.

The Coca-Cola Games will be held on April 25 and 26 at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
