THE Fiji Football Association will soon appoint a commercial manager to generate income for the parent body.
The commercial manager will be in charge of promoting the Fiji FA brand.
Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said the appointment would be done in consultation with FIFA.
"With the appointment of the commercial manager, it will open new doors for Fiji FA to get the needed revenue to boost the operations," Patel said.
"The application for the position has closed. We definitely need to promote our products. There are so many areas that we are lacking in where we can get funds from."
Meanwhile, the parent body is keen to promote women's soccer in the country after the successful hosting of the first ever Girl's Under-16 Secondary Schools Championship in Ba in August.
The tournament was used for the selection of the national U17 team to participate in the Oceania playoffs which was originally scheduled for early next year.
However, with FIFA now requesting the Oceania Football Confederation to shift the dates for the playoffs to December, Fiji's participation is in doubt.
"It is sad that we have lost Farouk Janeman who started the Girl's U16 competition," Patel said.
"For the first time 38 schools participated in the event. It gave us a good platform for the national Under-17 team. But FIFA has asked Oceania to move the regional qualifiers to the first week of December.
"It is impossible for us because the students will be going through examinations before that. The other island nations are also concerned.
"New Zealand is the only country that has confirmed but they have requested for the deferments of dates as well."
