THE Nadi soccer side is keen to maintain the momentum it had created after retaining the Pacific Cup title during the upcoming Jimmy Ram Pratap Trophy challenge series against Lautoka.

The Jetsetters will play the Sugar City side on home and away basis next week for the prestigious trophy.

The match will be played in the memory of the late Jimmy Ram Pratap who was one of the founders of Nadi Football Association.

Nadi soccer president Navneeda Goundar said the Jimmy Ram Pratap Trophy challenge was oldest competition they were part of.

He said Nadi won the trophy last year and would be all out to defend it this year.

"We are going for straight wins against Lautoka. We won the Pacific Cup and we want to maintain the momentum we have created," Goundar said.

"This is a good buildup for the team as we prepare for the Champion versus Champion series and also for Lautoka as they prepare for the upcoming league competition."

The first leg will be played on Wednesday, December 18 at Prince Charles Park at 7pm followed by the second leg at Churchill Park on Sunday, December 22 at 3pm.

Ticket price is $3 flat.
