This is possibly the most exciting part of the Fijian Cup. Second only to staying in the 5* Sheraton resort, our kick-ass opening and closing parties and our off the hook extra activities!
Although it’s cringeworthy and cliched here at the Fijian Cup it really is the taking part that counts. Let’s chuck all the cliches in there…ultimately, rugby is the real winner!
It’s cliched but its true! The Fijian Cup is an opportunity for grassroots players from New Zealand, Australia and Fiji to come together to share their skills, strut their stuff and, well, enjoy the world’s most impressive sporting paradise.
We’re not like the golf PGA tour, here at the Fijian Cup all winners are equal. Our winners all put in the same hard graft and display the same grit, determination and kick-ass skills, so naturally they all win equal prizes.
We have prizes for the men’s division, the women’s division and the mixed division too. All the winning teams get exactly the same prize package.
Let’s take a look at what you win!
The Fijian Cup is a prestigious award and the winning teams from each division get to take home with them their Fijian Cup to proudly display in the club house for all to admire!
Each championing team wins the opportunity to return to the Fijian Cup next year to defend their title. We offer winners ten accomodation and competition entry packages to come back next year to enjoy not only rock the Fijian Cup touch rugby competition but enjoy our whole event programme.
Winners also receive a team cash cheque of $5,000 FJD. This can be spent however you like! Most teams reinvest it in kit and equipment for the next season. Some would like to splash the cash behind the bar but there’s no need; we’ve got that covered!
The final prize for each winning team is a $1,000 FJD bar tab at the Sheraton Fiji’s epic bar. Will it be Long Island Iced Teas or Pina Coladas all round? With $1,000 to spend you can have both…and then some!
Most Valuable Player
This is a really wonderful prize. From the moment you step on the pitch its eyes on the prize. The Most Valuable Player award goes to the player we think has contributed the most to the tournament, who has played with grace and sportsmanship and who embodies the ethos of the Fijian Cup.
The Most Valuable Player will take home their trophy, a $500 FJD cash cheque and the admiration of the Fijian Cup family.
Wow! That right there is over $50,000 of prizes! It doesn’t get much better than this!
All who attend the Fijian Cup, playing and non-playing, are invited to attend our closing ceremony and awards party on our final night in paradise. Be sure to bring your glad rags, this is quite the occasion!
Our Hosts – Sheraton Fiji
Here at the Fijian Cup and Tourism HQ we pride ourselves on working with the best in the business. Our aim is to offer our guests the time of their life, room the moment they touch down in Fiji to the moment we (sadly!) head home.
Part of our ethos is to work with partners who share the same beliefs as us when it comes to delivering the highest standard of hospitality. In light of this we have teamed up with the incredible 5* Sheraton Fiji to offer our players and supporters a taste of luxury while at the Fijian Cup.
Why The Sheraton Fiji?
We have chosen to work with Sheraton Fiji because of their 5* experience.
Everything from the incredible location of the resort to their welcoming and hospitable team of staff to the amazing range of restaurants they have to offer makes us think that this is a little gem of perfection set in a true paradise.
The Sheraton Fiji is beautifully situated on Denarau Island and can house up to 300 people at a time. You may think that 300 is a lot of people, that the place may feel busy and overcrowded. Far from it, the Sheraton’s grounds are so expansive that it feels calm and peaceful while offering guests plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle.
What’s At The Resort?
Legit, it’s easier to ask what’s not at the resort! Swimming pools, an epic fitness centre and four restaurants are just the start!
If you’re a real foodie or just want to experience how the other half live be sure to book at table at Ports O’Call, the island’s best fine dining restaurant.
Once you’ve finished on the pitch chances are you’re going to want to soothe those aching muscles. The Sheraton Fiji has an exquisite spa complex offering a Vichy shower, hydrotherapy pools and high tech sauna room. Offering everything from Fiji Bobo massage to a silicium super lift facial you’ll feel like a whole new person when you emerge from the magical spa rooms.
What Are The Rooms Like?
As you would expect from a 5* resort the Sheraton Fiji’s rooms are pretty darn spectacular! We have five accomodation options for you to choose from, it’s a difficult choice to be fair; all the rooms are awesome!
As the name would suggest the Ocean Front Suite offers you unrivalled views of the Pacific Ocean to wake up to each morning. The Lagoon Villa is a spacious private apartment set back in the lush gardens of the Sheraton Fiji. Finally the Ocean Breeze suites are ground floor rooms that open up into landscaped gardens and look out towards the ocean.
Included in your room package is an epic American style buffet breakfast each morning. On top of this you have access to the Sheraton’s swimming pools and fitness centre.
To sweeten the deal even further you have complimentary use of snorkelling equipment, kayaks and paddleboards for a bit of added fun and active recovery during your time at the Fijian Cup.
We are proud as punch to be working with the Sheraton Fiji to host the Fijian Cup. One thing is for sure, you’re never gonna wanna leave!
