MARIST Volleyball Club has partnered with the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation to support the upcoming tournament next month.

The two parties signed an agreement of $15,000 total prizemoney per year for the next five years. FBC will air some games on television and radio.

The event will be known as the Bula FM Marist Volleyball tournament.

Marist volleyball president Savenaca Tuivaga said the support was a huge boost building up to the event.

"We're grateful for FBC for coming forward to support us with this sponsorship," he said.

"It's a milestone for this kind of sponsorship to be done. This is a big achievement for Marist Volleyball. It is also the first time to bring in FBC to sponsor us at this tournament and we're grateful and thankful they will broadcast the tournament."

FBC has signed a five-year partnership with the Suva-based club. FBC chief financial officer Vimlesh Sagar said the objective was to develop minor sports.
