THE Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s snapped another sponsor the in lead-up to the prestigious tournament to be held from November 13 to 15 at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

Yesterday, Telecom Fiji Limited signed up with the organisers becoming the prime partner of the tournament.

Company CEO Mothilal De Silva said they were pleased to increase their commitment with the tournament this year.

In the past, Telecom Fiji featured the Connect Media Centre providing facilities, services and technology for the local and international media to cover the event.

Alongside those services, the TFL plate will be contested by the sides that lose in the quarters of the Crest Na Iri Trophy (women's competition) this year.

"Telecom Fiji has shown its commitment to Fiji rugby by sponsoring the Telecom Fiji Warriors, Fiji Island Zone and Telecom Fijiana and we are particularly pleased to extend our support of the women's game," De Silva said.

Coral Coast 7s tournament director Nick Jordan said they were grateful for the continued support of Telecom Fiji.

"The women's game is growing around the country, the region and the world and we expect a quality field including Telecom Fijiana and Aussie Pearls as well as teams from the US, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea," Jordan said.

He said the team number in the women's grade would also increase to 16 this year.

Telecom Fiji will also provide SIM cards to overseas team managers and special guests and as prizes to spectators.
