Fijians have been urged to show their support for Fiji and the Fiji Rugby Union’s bid to host the Fijian leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series.
FRU president, Voreqe Bainimarama launched a website Fijifor7s.com last night to allow everyone to show their support in the coming months.
He encouraged all Fijians to register at Fijifor7s.com and help FRU bring the HSBC tournament to Fiji.
Bainimarama says when Fiji wins the bid, we want to host the game as early as 2020.
“We are certainly ready to do so. We have shown we are much more then capable of hosting major international sporting events and Fiji belongs to be on the World Rugby HSBC circuit. We want World Rugby to see the passion of our people, the support of our country and the unique Fijian way. We have the facilities, we have the hotels, we have infrastructure, we have the air connection, we have the communications and in the next two years we are committed to make any infrastructure improvements that we need to make.”
Bainimarama says we want to show World Rugby the depth of our national commitment, the passion of our people and our capacity to deliver the world event.
