THE Wardens 7s team received a sponsorship just a day before they departed for the Samoa Independence International 7s tournament.

The side fly out of the country today but yesterday they were given a new set of jerseys by their new sponsors Vinod Patel.

Vinod Patel manager promotions Zaheer Hassan also announced they would sponsor the club for the remainder of the season and the sponsorship was worth up to $7000.

He said the team would also receive bonus payments for winning or finishing as runners up in the four major local tournaments — Coral Coast 7s, Uprising 7s, Marist 7s and Nawaka 7s and cash rewards would also be given to the highest try scorer from the team in the four tournaments.

"Sevens rugby is the biggest sport in the country and this is the first time Vinod Patel is sponsoring rugby in the country," Hassan said.

"The rewards we are going to give the team as incentives are there to motivate the team to give a good performance in whichever tournaments they participate in."

Wardens team manager Kaliopasa Bogiva thanked Vinod Patel for their gesture and promised to promote the brand anywhere they go or compete.

"The team travels to Samoa tomorrow (today) and we would like to thank Vinod Patel for coming on board to assist us," he said.

"This is a huge boost for us and it will motivate us in every step of the way."

Yamacia and Police are the other two teams from Fiji that will participate in the Samoa Independence International 7s.

"There will be other local teams there and there will also be other international teams there and we look forward to the competition," Bogiva said.
