ORGANISERS of the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s tournament have announced another sponsorship building up to the event in November.

Yesterday, it announced that the Naviti Resort has renewed its partnership for a fifth straight year, officials sponsors, Bayleys Real Estate (Fiji), Outrigger on the Lagoon & Fiji, Bedarra Beach Inn and Gecko's Resort.

The four-star Naviti Resort will host two overseas teams as an Official Resort Hotel of the tournament on November 13-15.

Tournament Director Nick Jordan said the support of the deluxe beachside resort would enhance the "champion of champions" tournament.

"It is fantastic news that The Naviti Resort has re-signed as one of our key suppliers for this year," he said in a statement.

"The teams, who will both be champions of our partner tournaments, are sure to feel welcome in the stunning surroundings of The Naviti Resort."

Naviti's executive assistant resort manager Mosese Virivirilau said they were delighted to be back on board.

"It is an honour to be able to provide excellent accommodation, dining and activities to the visiting teams throughout the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens which is quickly becoming the premier sevens tournament in Fiji," he said.

"We are also excited for our staff team, who made the semi finals in 2012, to receive automatic entry into the tournament and thereby compete for the substantial $75,000 prize pool." Other benefits of the partnership include signage, tickets and hospitality as well as logo recognition on the tournament website, fijiscoralcoastsevens.com, advertising and billboards."
