A $104,000 sponsorship was handed over by the Fiji National Sports Commission to the Fiji National Rugby League today to host the Melanesian Cup.

Chief Executive Officer for the Commission, Peter Mazey says this tournament will be between Papua New Guinea's top team and Fiji's top team.

Mazey says Melanesia sports have become more important to them, and they realize that Fiji and other Melanesian countries have set a bar of supporting each other.

Acting CEO of FNRL Don Natabe says they are excited to announce the return of the Melanesian Cup after a lapse of 2 years.

Natabe says this year's Melanesian Cup will be a special one as well as they welcome the Silktails for their round 2 matches against Canterbury Bulldogs Club in Lautoka, and Fiji’s top team Western State Maroons will meet PNG’s top team Hela Wigmen.

The games will be held next week Saturday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
