Sports Council Gears Up for Centennial Match Underline 06 May, 2013

The Fiji Sports Council is gearing up for the Centennial match between the Classic All Blacks and the Flying Fijians at the National Stadium in Suva on June 12.

Renovations to the stadium are nearing completion with contractors putting on the finishing touches in terms of the fence and joinery works in the event organizers room and coaches boxes. Bucket seats are also being installed and the ticket booth is being done up as well.

But FSC Chief Executive Officer Litiana Loabuka says that the stadium will be ready in time for the Centennial match.

“We have several district football and rugby matches confirmed prior to the match and the official opening of the ANZ stadium is scheduled for June 11” she said.

“Because of how special rugby is in Fiji, it’s quite an exciting game for us to have rugby players of their caliber playing on the new field. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase exactly what Fiji has to offer.”

“The playing field is now the correct length and width for local and international rugby matches.”

Loabuka added that the FSC was thrilled to be part of FRU’s centennial year and hosting the match meant that they were able to deliver premier facilities for games and tournaments to the sport loving public in Fiji.

“We anticipate the turnout to be huge. Of course normal ticket sale procedures and logistics will need to be adhered to but for the Classic All Blacks to be in our newly renovated stadium we can expect nothing less.”

The new stadium has not only seen a major change in the field and sitting arrangements but also in the changing rooms and facilities which makes it an international standard facility.

“When you watch an international match from the players arriving, half time change rooms, reserved players and coaches seating, this is what the new stadium has to offer.”

“We have ice bath facilities and enough room in the changing rooms for masseuse table to be set up. These are some of the fantastic offers that the Classic All Blacks and the Flying Fijians will be able to use on the match day.”

She says that for future rugby tournaments and matches FSC would continue to support Fiji Rugby.

“Congratulations to FRU on their 100th anniversary. FSC looks forward to supporting FRU in their celebration program and also welcoming the Classic All Blacks to Fiji.

The much anticipated Flying Fijians vs Classic All Blacks match will kick off at 6pm on June 12.
