THE second leg of the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion (CVC) series, which was supposed to be held this Sunday, has now been postponed to a later date.
The Fiji FA made the decision in consideration of the Tropical Cyclone Evan which is likely to hit Fiji this weekend.
Earlier the opening round of the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League matches to be played in Labasa and Lautoka this weekend was also cancelled.
With the postponement giving teams more time to prepare, Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar said teams needed to take the early rounds of the 2012/13 National Football League games seriously.
Kumar said the NFL would determine their participation in the Fiji FACT and Battle of the Giants tournaments next year and their place in the super premier grade in 2014.
"We have sounded this out to the teams and they have to be serious from day one to be in it to stay," he said.
"We have a very compact league season and we are not looking at any postponement unless adverse weather where we might be forced to postpone some games."
Meanwhile Fiji FA is yet to make their decision on the Ba and Suva players under investigation for unruly behaviour during the 2012 Courts Inter District Championship (IDC) final.
Ba's Osea Vakatalesau, Abbu Zaheed and Avinesh Waran Suwamy plus Suva's Simione Maikali is under Fiji FA's radar for suspected misconduct at Govind Park in October this year.
"Although we have heard their cases, the decision is yet to be made. The players are eligible to play because they are not guilty yet unless prove," Kumar said.
