FOUR million homes in over 30 countries will watch live coverage of the Fiji International golf tournament next month.

This is possible after the Fiji Television Limited completed a partnership with the organisers to extend its regional coverage of the inaugural tournament, dubbed as the biggest sporting event in Fiji.

Last week, the organisers announced that Fiji TV has been granted non-exclusive free to air rights and exclusive pay television rights for the event, scheduled to be played from August 14 - 17 at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.

Fiji TV will broadcast both live coverage and highlights of the four-day tournament on its Fiji One and Sky Pacific television platform.

The coverage will be broadcast across the Pacific, including American Samoa, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu, and Cook Islands.

Tevita Gonelevu, the chief executive officer of the television company said they were happy to showcase the event.

"The Fiji International is a great opportunity for the Fijian people and the Pacific community and we're pleased to showcase this great sporting event throughout Fiji and the Pacific Islands," he said.

On behalf of the tournament promoters Basil Scaffidi, the managing director of Sports and Entertainment Limited, said he was pleased to be partnering with Fiji TV.

"The Fiji International will be a great television spectacle for Fiji," he said.

"Promoting the Fijian people, community and culture the broadcast will be about much more than just a golf tournament and we're pleased that so many in the wider Pacific region will be able to watch the golf tournament via Fiji TV."

Supported by the Fijian Government, the Fiji International has attracted golfing icons such as Nick Price and Vijay Singh.
