Marist 7s' 3-phase focus

THE 42nd edition of the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament will be held on March 23-24.

With the $42,000 prizemoney up for grabs, Fiji's biggest two-day competition will be held on four grounds under one venue.

Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram says leading up to the tournament, the committee's three-phase focus is on team registrations, top line tournament details and selling of the tournament.

Phase one, he says, is team registration and top line tournament details which will be the committee's focus for the next three weeks.

"Phase two will include details proper, teams' expectations, managers' expectations, facilities and services provided to teams by Marist Rugby Club," he said.

"Phase three will focus on prizemoney structure, managers' meet, team registration, submissions and medical services provision and more on tournament details, games village for teams set-up, rules and regulations."

Tikaram has called on the teams to register now before the due date at the end of this month.

"Last year, we completed all registrations a month before the tournament but had to refund more than 20 teams their money because of late fee payment, wrong or no details on the deposit slips.

"This year, two weeks before the tournament, tickets will go on sale at the Fiji Sports Council office.

"On day one, the flat embankment seat or grandstand bucket is selling for just $7. Tickets for day two is $15 for grandstand bucket seat and $7 for the flat ground or embankment.

"Children under the age of 6, who will be going to the grandstand on day two, will have to pay the full amount as they will occupy a seat."

He said ground entry fee for children under 6, accompanied by an adult, would be free on both days.
