Ba to miss league

BA will not be featuring in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League (NFL) next month.

This is to allow the 4R Electrical-sponsored side to prepare for the Oceania Champions League group stage that will be held in the country from April 7 to April 13.

Ba Football Association forwarded a proposal to the Fiji Football Association seeking time off from the NFL.

This was discussed during the Fiji FA board and council meeting in Nadi yesterday.

Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said both the board and council approved the proposal.

Patel said Nadi, the other Oceania Champions League representative would be putting up a similar proposal.

"In principle we have granted Nadi time off for a certain period also," he said.

"But they need to get the request across to us."

Nadi played in the inaugural edition of the competition back in 1999 when it was known as the Oceania Club Championship.

The Jetsetters lost to South Melbourne 5-1 in the final held at Prince Charles Park.

Ba reached the final of the 2007 Oceania Champions League losing to Waitakere United on the away goals rule.

The Men in Black also featured in the 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013 editions.

To complete the NFL schedule, Ba and Nadi will play mid-week matches after the Oceania Champions League.
