REWA Football Association will not repeat the same mistake of not nominating a representative to the National Club Championship this season.
And in doing so, the Rewa FA have made an early start to their local league competition.
Last year, the association failed to nominate their representative to the NCC after failing to complete their local league on time. The Lokia United team were the NCC champions in 2011.
Rewa FA local league chairman Rohitesh Prasad said they could not defend their title last year after failing to submit their nomination on time.
"We started very early this season so we can nominate our two clubs to the NCC. Last year our defending champion could not defend their title because of the problem we had. Now we do not want to repeat the same mistake," he said.
"We have learnt from it and we do not want that to happen again."
Meanwhile RFA continued with its competition last Sunday. He said they were impressed with the responses from the clubs.
"This is a very early start for us but the clubs are responding well. The lower two division played on Sunday. I think teams are slowly getting to their forms again. We have another eight rounds to play so we are hoping that the weather will be fine so we can finish early," Prasad said.
