The Fiji Sports Council says starting from tomorrow the cost of hiring Sports Council facilities for any event will be reduced by 50%.
Fiji Sports Council CEO Litiana Loabuka says in light of the current economic situation due to effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Council has reviewed the rates for the hire of sporting facilities for any events.
She says this will come into effect by tomorrow and it will run till the 31st of July 2021.
Loabuka also highlighted that 80 per cent of the gate takings for any sports events will go to the organisers and 20 per cent will go to the Council.
This is a change from the 75/25 arrangement in the past.
She adds that this gate-taking incentive is to encourage more activities to happen over the next 12 months and also help the economy recover.
The CEO says this will also encourage more people to use their facilities for any function they wish to organise.
