A FORMER manager of the national Futsal side is organising a 5-a-side tournament this weekend to help with the development of the sport.

Krishneil Sharma, who managed the Fiji Futsal side in 2011, said they have confirmed 16 teams for the Southern Forest-sponsored tournament which will be played at the Vodafone Arena in Suva tomorrow.

"This tournament will showcase the abundant talent of Futsal players in the country," he said.

"The players do not necessarily have to be district reps but have the basics and talent in Futsal that perhaps Fiji needs to help strengthen the sport in the country."

Sharma said they hoped to make it an annual event.

Renowned Futsal clubs like Southern Forest, Dhanji Boys and Samba Kings have confirmed participation.

"The winner will get $300 in cash and a trophy while the runner-up will also get a trophy and cash and we will also give a prize to the plate winner," Sharma said.
