Part of the requirements by organizers of the 47th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s is for all players and officials to have valid photo ID’s.

Before only the Under 21 players were required to have valid photo ID’s.

Marist 7s Tournament Director Koli Korovulavula says this is also part of helping team managers prepare for bigger tournaments and who knows one of them may manage the national side in the future.
