AFTER a successful tournament last year, the momentum for the Fiji Bitter Savusavu sevens, volleyball and netball tournament has picked up with organisers expecting another positive turnout this year.

Tournament organiser Pat Qilatabu said so far 25 teams had registered for the sevens tournament.

"We have received a lot of support and we are grateful to our sponsors and the Cakaudrove Provincial office for their support," he said.

"We are giving priority to teams in Vanua Levu to be part of the tournament but interest from teams in Viti Levu has grown too."

He said each team confirmed for the tournament had to register with a $300 fee.

"This is our ninth year and every year we have seen the tournament grow.

"This year we'd like the tournament to be more bigger and better."

Qalitabu said support from corporate bodies was also vital for the success of the tournament.

"This support will improve rugby in the North and also will expose the talent of young men to the demanding market of rugby locally and overseas as well.

"This year's sponsorship is $10,000, which will be shared in this three-day tournament.

"The prizemoney for the main sevens tournament is $4000."

He said defending champions, the Police Sevens team from Suva, had confirmed their participation this year.

The tournament will be held from May 1 to 3 at Ratu Ganilau Park in Savusavu.
