FIJI under-20 football players will not be released to play for their districts from this weekend.
Fiji Football Association acting president Sheik Ibrahim said this was passed at a council meeting that the youngsters would only be available to play for their teams "up to the 12th of February".
"We are taking the Oceania Football Confederation under-20 Championship very seriously," Ibrahim said.
"We have a very good side, one of the best assembled after a long time. There's only a month to the event and these players will now focus only on the mission that they have gathered for at the academy (in Ba)."
Several top reps in the under-20 side include Ba's Jone Salauneune, who has been featuring for the Men in Black's under-21 side this season.
"These players will come out of the camp and championship a lot wiser, having learnt more and gained experience," Ibrahim said.
Fiji will take part in the Oceania under-20 Championship in Ba and Lautoka from March 21-29.
Fiji under-20 reps Napolioni Qasevakatini and Rusiate Matirerega have been in fine form for table toppers Nadi in the National Football League. They have scored six of Nadi's 11 goals after seven matches. Nadi leads with 19 points, followed closely by Ba on 18 with Suva third on 13 points.
