UltimateRugbySevens.com quotes tournament director Nick Jordan as saying, "These three clubs have earned their way to the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens and we are delighted they have accepted our invitation. Our vision is for a long-term partnership with the two tournaments where their champions come and take on the best in Fiji, and our champion is invited to theirs."
The Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens tournament is in its fourth year and is sponsored by Bayleys Real Estate (Fiji) Ltd. who signed a three-year naming rights deal in May.
