TATTERSALLS Fiji will sponsor the 2017 Fiji Sports Awards with a cash contribution of $30,000 for the event to be held next month in Suva.

The company had been a supporter for the yearly event since 2001 when the Fiji Sports Awards were organised by the Fiji Sports Council and later became a major supporter when the awards became a partnership between the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee, Fiji Sports Council and Fiji National Sports Commission.

Chairman of the 2017 Fiji Sports Awards committee, Manasa Baravilala, said they (Tattersalls Fiji) are the main sponsor.

"They have come on board as the major sponsors for the Fiji Sports Awards and they will get the naming right to the Fiji Sports Awards," Baravilala said.

"The nominations vary as there are some individual nominations, team nominations, photojournalists, and administrators."

The awards will recognise the contribution of athletes, administrators, coaches, volunteers and photographers to sports in Fiji.

"The nominees reception will be held to acknowledge all the nominees because all the nominees are not going to win so we want to acknowledge the nominees and the respective federations," Baravilala said.

"It is also the night for the sponsor."

There are 11 categories up for the grab which includes coach of the year, administrator of the year, the technical official of the year, sports photographer of the year, volunteers of the year, sports team of the year, young sportsman and sportswoman of the year with two main categories sportsman and sportswoman of the year.

The awards night will be held on March 2 at the National Gymnasium.
