Super League TriathlonSo far, the Tourism Development Fund has contributed £200,000 to secure the event. The remaining £1.3 million is expected from sponsorship along with the Super League Triathlon organization.

 
Nevertheless, £200,000 payment has left very little scope for further future investments. Senator Farnham explained that his department would enforce proposal to refill the fund by utilizing money kept sideways for the purpose of economic growth in the most recent Medium Term Financial Plan.

 
The minister expects that not only the Super League Triathlon will eventually become a regular event in the island’s calendar but a successful weekend will fortify his cry out for additional state funds to be invested behind tourism practices. The Super League Triathlon will be held on 23rd and 24th September.

 
He said: ‘We are completely focused on delivering the best show we can offer and hopefully we will see the positive impact events like this can have. One of the ways I want to make tourism more productive in the winter months is with events. This is the first time we have had such a major event and if it is a success then it should lead to not only this becoming a more permanent fixture but encourage the Island to look for more big events in the winter months. The Tourism Development Fund now is pretty much used up and the department are working on proposals for putting money back into the fund.’
