Rodu keen to develop soccer

REWA soccer coach Marika Rodu is organising a seven-a-side tournament this weekend to help develop the sport in the district.

With his district team on bye in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League competition, the coach and his players will not stay idle this weekend.

He said the tournament would accommodate 20 men's teams and 10 women's teams. The women will play their competition first on Saturday followed by the men on Sunday.

"Firstly, this is a fundraising drive to raise funds to cater for the operation of the Women's Local Club League," Rodu said.

"Secondly, to keep all interested girls occupied with football until the Fiji Football Association confirms a tentative schedule of the Women's National League."

Rodu said there was a lot of interest in soccer from women and they would like to see the talent they have in the district.

"The idea behind the Saturday event is to pool maximum number of girls who may be interested in joining Rewa and see if we are able to allocate them into four different clubs.

"Once we do that, we will be able to set a date to kick off the Rewa women's football knock-out and local league. All this is in preparation for the National League and other Fiji FA-sanctioned women's competition."
