LICI Fiji, one of the country’s leading insurers, has joined forces with the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens.
The iconic company becomes a Vuvale partner of the tournament at Lawaqa Park on 13-15 November.
“We have supported local sports, including rugby, for a number of years since our launch in Fiji in 1956 and we are pleased to extend that to a tournament which captures the interest of the nation every November,” said Vimlesh Dhar, General Manager Fiji Operations.
“Last year the tournament attracted a large crowd and excellent media coverage and we expect that to continue ahead of an important Olympic qualifying season.”
LICI provides personal insurance, micro insurance and group life insurance among its portfolio and has assets of almost $500 million in Fiji.
“Our vision is to become the preferred insurer of choice for the people of Fiji and we are excited by the opportunity to share in the growth of the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens.”
“We are delighted to welcome LICI to the sponsor family and thank them for their support,” said Tournament Director Nick Jordan. “With less than 100 days to go the excitement is starting to build for the fifth edition of the tournament.
“Earlier this week we announced an increase in the number of women’s teams, from 12 to 16, and with the 24-team men’s competition also expected to be a strong field the many fans of rugby sevens are in for a treat in November.”
