The Fiji National Sports Commission will be anticipating a 50% reduction in their budget allocation.

National Sports Commission Chairman Peter Mazey says most of their allocation will be for grants to sporting bodies and they hope their request for an allocation for the development of local sports offices is approved.

Mazey says the Sports Commission understands what the government is going through.

He says the grants will focus on sports that are preparing for the upcoming Olympics that will feature the Menโ€™s and Women's Sevens teams and a few other sports.

He say they will also look at the Womenโ€™s 15s Rugby World Cup which Fiji qualified for last year.

Mazey says 26 sporting bodies have handed in their submission for grants and as of this year, all the sporting bodies who requested for funding have received it.
