Local rugby fans may have to adapt to the new dates of the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament.
The tournament usually falls in March and April but this may no longer be the case.
The 44th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A timeframe has been tentatively set for September with confirmation on its exact dates still under discussion.
Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram says the changes this year will ultimately affect the dates of future tournaments.
“With the change in dates this year, we could look at some other dates for next year, but again like I said that’s subject to discussion but the ultimate goal is to provide the platform for conducive high intensity rugby especially the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s.”
This is among the many issues tabled by the organizers as they look at scenarios to reconvene the Marist 7s tournament.
Changes are also expected in the tournament’s format, structure, and the possible scaling back of the number of participating men’s teams.
