Sporting Feast

What is the possibility of having a sporting finals treat with the Deans and Digicel rugby and a Soccer BOG or Inter District finals all in one venue, and each as the main attraction on its own merit. Having marketed it well, we (Fiji) will benefit from the venture and have many levels of sports in one venue. A school-boy and Fiji rugby and soccer being held at the same venue and same day.. wow .. it will be a feast of sports .. . include a school boy soccer final and we will exceed ourselves. We could have the this in Rakiraki and give the people of Rakiraki to gain economically. And alternate the venue between Viti Levu and Vanualevu Levu. And then there is Levuka and we could develop the venue in the old Capital.

Sport is now big money, business that is. Just look at the MIC Show.. - the singers get exposed and my friends at Vodafone get a few loose change and they are able to give back to us free text and free calls. Yes rugby and soccer  can also enhance business, pay packet, advertising and economically  assist any place that has businesses, such as food stalls, taxis, hotels, pubs, dances halls, churches, food stalls, you name it.

The benefits are endless... just as long as it is managed well. And with all the minds combining and just like Adidas says.. nothing is impossible.

@ Sport is Big Business......Allen Lockington's Weekly Piece

Yes, it is and one of the greatest sportsmen in our region is in Fiji with his All Black friends: Andy Hayden. We should note that he spoke in a most friendly and notewothy manner about Fiji. We need more sporting celebrities to do likewise. They have derived pleasure from sporting holidays and tournaments in Fiji for years. Why do more of them not acknowledge this? A big Vinaka vaka Levu to Andy.
