Tournament Director Jay Whyte said the tournaments 9th edition was made possible only with today’s partnership announcement with McDonald’s Restaurant.
“We are committed to delivering new talent for the Fiji Rugby 7s player pool,” Mr Whyte said.
“We are grateful to Marc Elrath and his team at McDonald's for joining with us in helping deliver another event.”
Fiji has incredible talent and many overseas teams know that, so they come here to develop their own pool of players, Mr Whyte added.

The Fiji’s Coral Coast Sevens boasts the best level of competition in Youth with this being the fourth year that the division has been included.
Overseas teams confirmed to take part include Aussie Mens, Hong Kong Men and Hong Kong Women's.
