THE bottom two placed teams in the Top 8 at the end of the Vodafone Cup competition this season will be demoted.

This was announced by the Fiji National Rugby League (FNRL) yesterday during the launch of the 2014 Vodafone Cup competition in Suva.

The first round of Top 8 and premier grade competitions will be played tomorrow at the Ra Sports Ground in Rakiraki.

FNRL operations manager Joeli Savou said the two from the bottom would be relegated to the premier grade while the top two from the premier grade would be promoted.

Meanwhile, the new jerseys of the Top 8 teams were also revealed yesterday.

Vodafone Fiji chief marketing officer Sanjeewa Perera said they were proud to facilitate the growth of the sport.

"The renewal of our sponsorship only shows our passion and dedication towards uplifting the sport from grassroots level; up, which was witnessed during the Vodafone Trophy where for the first time teams participating in the finals were provided with full playing apparels," he said.

"Today, we witness another gesture of our support in uplifting the profile of the sport where Vodafone will provide the full playing gear to the top 8 premier teams.

"This is simply to add uniformity and vibrancy in the field."
