IT is a do-or-die situation for Nadi and Ba in the third match of the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion series at Churchill Park in Lautoka tomorrow.

The match will be played on a knockout basis with extra time and penalty shootout to decide the winner in case of a draw.

The home and away series ended in a stalemate after both matches finished 1-all forcing a decider.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said they expect a bigger turnout for the final showdown.

Pal said the fans should purchase the tickets early to avoid disappointment.

"In the last two games the fans queued up late for the tickets," he said.

"The tickets are on sale in Ba, Lautoka and Nadi and we wish to advise the patrons to buy them early because there will be a big demand come Saturday.

"Both teams have been equally competitive and it should be an interesting battle."

The winner of the CVC will receive $4000 and the losing team $2000.

Ba is aiming for a record 18th CVC title. Labasa won the inaugural event in 1992 and also won it 2007. Lautoka and Rewa are the only other districts that have won the title.

The game will start at 4pm.
