Welcome Cocktail Evening
We love the Fijian Cup Sevens welcome cocktail evening. With over 200 people to meet and greet and the chance to hang out with your own team too, the welcome cocktail evening really sets the up-beat, and community minded feel of the whole Fijian Cup Sevens weekend.
It is a time for warm welcomes, kind introductions and for that light hearted fighting talk to start bubbling up. This is not only your welcome to the tournament but also to each other. We have teams joining us from New Zealand, Australia and Fiji. If you are recruiting some local Fijian players to your team, now is the time to come together and confirm your team ethic moving forward.
Fijian culture is rich and diverse. Although you couldn’t possibly learn the nuance of any culture in just a few days, at the Fijian Cup Sevens we think it is vitally important that our guests learn about the island and the culture that they have the honour of visiting.
Our cultural events are led by local Fijian people for whom these events are not a show for tourists but a very real part of their life and their faith. You are invited to join our friends in a traditional Kava ceremony and come together for a beautiful Lovo dinner.
We have chosen the Shangri La Resort as an venue for its stunning location and their fantastic range of recreational and entertainment facilities. The Shangri-La offers a 9-hole golf course, an onsite pool, multiple bars, restaurants, free non motorised water sports in addition to their luxurious in-house spa, CHI.
You are welcome to book on to as many or as few additional activities as you like. You can head out into the private lagoon and snorkel to your heart’s content, can row out on a glass bottom boat and see the marine life whip around beneath you. The Shangri-La has a number of community and conservation projects. You can arrange to visit their Care for Nature project.
Award Evening & Closing Ceremony
With so much crammed into four days we like to bring the life changing experience that is the Fijian Cup Sevens to a close in the right way. There is also $50,000FJD worth of prizes to award to our worthy winners too.
Our awards evening and closing ceremony is good old fashioned fun. We call come together for drinks and dinner followed by prize giving, an impressive fireworks display and the chance to dance the night away with all our new found Fijian Cup Sevens friends.
The Fijian Cup Sevens is as much about adventure and community as it is about sport. We can’t wait to share this experience with you and your team. We will see you in paradise.
