A MAJOR celebration is being planned in Ba for Saturday, says special administrator Praveen Bala.
He said the celebration would be a mark of acknowledgement of the achievements of the Ba soccer and rugby teams this year.
Bala said it was a milestone achievement for a Ba soccer team to win three major soccer titles — the Courts IDC title, Inkk Mobile BOG and the National Soccer League competition.
Bala said the Ba Primary School, AD Patel and Kamil Muslim College have also been invited to take part in the parade for winning soccer titles in their various categories.
He said the Ba rugby players would also be part of the celebration for winning the B Division rugby title.
"The parade is to commend our sports people and teams for their achievements this year," said Bala.
"The theme of the day is Unity through Sports.
"The celebration is jointly organised by Ba Football, Education Ministry, Ba Advisory Council and Ba Chambers of Commerce."
Bala said the people of the Ba were welcome to support their sports heroes at the parade.
"All individuals and businesses wanting to have float are to register with the Ba Town Council on Thursday," he said.
He said Sports Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto would be the chief guest at the celebration.
