CVC champ to walk away with $4000

THE winner of the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion series will walk away $4000 richer.

The home and away CVC series kicks off at Prince Charles Park tomorrow with host Nadi taking on defending champions Ba.

Nadi will be playing in the series for the fifth time having lost to Ba on all four previous occasions.

The Shop N Save Nadi will be relying on the deadly strike force of Napolioni Qasevakatini and Rusiate Matarerega to do the damage.

Ba who are the 17 time champions have kept a low profile going into the series.

The Men in Black faced on Nadi six occasions last season, recording a win, a draw and four losses.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said the series would be a cracker given the great rivalry between the teams last year.

Pal said the runner-up would receive $2000.

"The time for the first match has been shifted from 3pm to 4pm," Pal said.

"The second match is scheduled for Govind Park on January 19 starting at 3pm."

Tickets for the CVC will be selling at $5 for adults and $2 for children.
