NIGERIAN Sanni Issa has joined the 4R Electric Ba Football Club in preparation for the 2013 Oceania Football Association Champions League.

Issa expressed his interest to play in the high level competition last month.

Ba FC team manager Arvind Singh confirmed that Issa had joined the team. He said Issa only wished to represent the team in the O League.

"We will start training seriously for the O League after this weekend," Singh said.

"The draws for the OFC Champions League is out.

"We have tough schedule as we play our opening two matches away from home.

"The away games are always tough."

Ba FC start their campaign on March 30 facing Hekari United in Papua New Guinea.

The side will then travel to Honiara to play the Solomon Warriors on April 3.

Ba FC will host Hekari United on April 13 and then Solomon Warriors on April 17.

Ba FC will fly to Vanuatu to play Amicale on April 20 and then face them at home on April 27.

The final registrations for the OFC Champions League closed on Monday.

Each team in the competition can register a total of 10 foreign players.

Singh remained tight- lipped on their overseas recruits.

Ba has already received the transfer certificates of Fayah Camara of the Philippines and Clarence Clarke of Liberia for the 2013 OFC Champions League.
