A total of 56 men’s and five women’s teams will take part over the next three weekend’s in the Suva Rugby Union 10s.
SRU Secretary-General Tevita Tuiloa says teams from as far as Naqelewai in Naitasiri will be part of the competition.
“Thanks to the support from Digicel and Tau Sports, we are able to field teams not only from here in Suva, but also those from interior areas, to also give them an equal opportunity to come and demonstrate their talents.”
The Suva 10s received timely assistance today with Digicel Fiji and Tau Sports jumping on board as co-sponsors.
Digicel stepped in with a $7000 sponsorship while Tau Sports gave $3000 plus some merchandise.
Digicel Fiji Chief Executive Farid Mohammed says this partnership has further strengthened the bond with Suva Rugby.
Farid says they’re thrilled to be part of something that brings people together.
Tau Sports Director Deider Linda Moore says they’re happy to see some form of rugby back in the capital.
28 men’s teams will feature in the first round this weekend at Bidesi and Buckhurst grounds while the next 28 will be in action next weekend.
The Suva 10s finals will be held at Albert Park on the 4th of December and the winner will walk away with $6000.
