SOME big names will feature in the Nasinu Teachers College-organised FUTSAL tournament today.

The organisers have confirmed closing registration after 16 teams confirmed participation in the Suva tournament which will be held at the FMF Gymnasium in Laucala Bay.

NTC president Ajay Bhan said they were overwhelmed by the response from the clubs.

"Many teams had confirmed their participation by last week and the last few just on Tuesday," he said.

"More teams called to be included in the tournament but we needed only 16 teams so that is what we will stick to.

"But the response shown towards the tournament is good, and now we might just have to make this tournament an annual event."

Bhan said Frends United, Lokia, Fiji TV and Southern Forest, who are regulars and popular on the local FUTSAL scene, will participate in the tournament.

"What we do know is that the tournament will be good because the level of competition will be good."

Games begin at 2.30pm.
