RATU Cakobau Park in Nausori has been confirmed as the venue for Saturday's final Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy challenge between holders Fiji Bitter Suva and Lautoka.
Yesterday, Suva chairman Francis Kean said they had decided to play the last Farebrother challenge at Ratu Cakobau Park because it was the only venue available on this side of the country.
Kean said this was also a good opportunity for rugby fans in the East to watch a Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy match.
"We have decided to bring the match to Nausori because we want to give our fans in Suva and those from our neighbours in Naitasiri, Tailevu, Rewa and Northland an opportunity to watch a Farebrother match," Kean said.
"These fans have been missing out from watching Farebrother because this year it has only been played in Sigatoka and Lautoka.
"So now all rugby fans on this side of the island won't have to travel far to watch the Farebrother challenge as the game will now be played on their doorstep," Kean said.
"This is the last challenge of the year and we want to give our fans not only those in Suva but also from nearby areas the opportunity to watch some Farebrother action."
Kean said they had already met with the Fiji Rugby Union regarding the venue for the last title challenge of 2012.
"They (FRU) have also informed Lautoka about the venue of this weekend's clash and I believe everyone is looking forward to this game."
Suva has been facing ground problems ever since the National Stadium was closed early this year for renovations and had been playing its Digicel Cup home games at Albert Park.
After winning the Farebrother title from Nadroga two weeks ago, Fiji Bitter Suva defended the coveted silverware successfully against Naitasiri at Churchill Park in Lautoka last weekend.
Naitasiri had one hand on the title last week but gave away a penalty in the last minute of the game which was converted into points by Kaminieli Neiqisa to give Fiji Bitter Suva victory 14-12.
